Lowe's Joins TVA's Green Power Switch

July 2002 - Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse, the nation's 13th largest retailer, has become the largest purchaser of Green Power Switch, the renewable energy program offered by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and 46 distributors of TVA power across the Tennessee Valley. Lowe's green power purchases total about 3% of its monthly electrical use at the 32 stores where the green power product is currently available. The company is purchasing about 4.5 million kWh of green power annually for its stores but this figure is likely to increase as other TVA power distributors with Lowe's stores join the green power program.
