February 2009 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership issued revised lists of its leading green power partners nationally. For a second year, Intel Corporation remained at the top of the National Top 50 list while PepsiCo retained its position as the second largest purchaser. Dell Inc. climbed to third place with its annual green power purchases of more than 550 million kWh per year to meet 158% of its annual electricity demand. While a number of companies increased or decreased their annual purchase amounts, Kimberly-Clark Corp. vaulted onto the Top 50 list, jumping to the 15th spot with its use of an on-site biomass cogeneration boiler that generates 223 million kWh annually with wood waste. Also new to the list was Bloomberg L.D. with its purchase of 116.8 million kWh of green power, the equivalent of 50% of its electricity demand.
