Whole Foods Extends Wind Purchase, Sets Efficiency Goal

April 2010 - Whole Foods Market has purchased 810 million kWh of wind power, equivalent to 100 percent of its electricity use at its North American locations, through marketer 3Degrees.

Whole Foods Market has also made a commitment to on-site renewable energy systems, with 15 locations currently using solar power and more in development. Two stores host hydrogen fuel cells, and the Company's San Jose store recently announced it would host a fuel cell that will generate enough electricity to meet 90 percent of the store's needs.

In addition to its on-site and renewable energy purchases, Whole Foods Market announced plans to reduce energy consumption at all stores by 25 percent per square foot by 2015.
