EPA Updates 'Top 25' Green Power Purchaser List

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership issued an updated list of its "Top 25 Partners" for the end of 2005. The U.S. Air Force maintained its spot as the top purchaser of green power nationally—a rank it has held since the list was first published in September 2004—with current annual purchases of more than one billion kWh. Whole Foods Market is now second on the list with annual purchases of 458.4 million kWh, equivalent to 100% of its total corporate electricity needs. Other leading corporate purchasers include Johnson & Johnson (241.4 billion kWh annual purchase and fourth on the list); Starbucks (150 million kWh, sixth); Safeway Inc. (78 million kWh, eighth); and HSBC North America (68.2 million kWh, tenth).

Collectively, the Top 25 "Partners" purchase 3.3 billion kWh of green power annually, representing approximately 75% of the total purchases made by all 600 Partners.
