Coca-Cola Earns Third on EPA Top 20 List of On-Site Green Power Generators

Coca-Cola Refreshments has earned the third spot on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) list of largest on-site green power generators, largely due to Coca-Cola's installation of an onsite landfill-gas-to-energy system at an Atlanta facility. The system supplies most of the facility's energy needs, including electricity, steam and chilled water. The system contributes at least 48 million kilowatt-hours of on-site biomass energy each year and was part of the facility's effort to achieve LEED Gold certification. In addition, Coca-Cola also uses biofuels, fuel cells and solar panels at other facilities, which contributed to the EPA's recognition.

Walmart (114.9 million kWh) and BMW (61.8 million kWh) are the EPA's top on-site green power generators with the U.S. Air Force (39.7 million kWh) and the City of San Francisco (31.8 million kWh) rounding out the top five places.
