EPA Announces Top Purchasers and Fortune 500 Challenge Results

January 2008 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership issued revised lists of its leading green power partners nationally. Intel Corporation vaulted to the head of the National Top 25 list by committing to purchase 1.3 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable energy certificates annually. The U.S. Air Force climbed back to 3rd place after more than doubling its annual green power purchases to nearly 900 million kWh per year. In addition, HSBC North America jumped to the 10th spot by more than doubling its green power purchase to 300 million kWh per year. New to the National Top 25 list are two Texas cities—the City of Dallas (#9) and the City of Houston (#12), which are now the leading local government purchasers in EPA's program.

EPA also announced that fifty-three Fortune 500 companies are collectively purchasing more than 6 billion kWh of green power annually, surpassing the agency's challenge to double the size of their combined purchases. In December 2006, the EPA set a goal for Fortune 500 companies to exceed 5 billion kWh of green power purchases by the end of 2007.

EPA's Green Power Partnership works with more than 850 partner organizations that are collectively buying more than 13 billion kWh of green power annually.
