Texas Grocery Chain Purchases Green Power

August 2006 - H-E-B, a Texas-based grocery chain, is purchasing 27.6 million kWh of green power annually through Austin Energy's GreenChoice Program, making the chain one of the top retail company purchasers of green power nationally, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership. The green power is supplied from wind and landfill gas facilities, and represents about 25% of the total electricity used by the company's facilities in the Austin region. H-E-B also offers E-85, a blended fuel mixture of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline, at several of its gas stations.
