Green Power: Worth Celebrating?

This morning the U.S. EPA released their updated list of Green Power Partners – a list that we’ve topped for the past five years. In 2013, Intel is committed to purchasing over 3.1 BILLION kilowatt-hours of renewable energy credits, equal to 100% of our U.S. electricity use.

And while we love to share our own achievements in this space (check out my blog post from last month), what’s really great about this list is the fact it exists, and that there are so many organizations out there committed. The top 5 Green Power Partners are collectively committed to more than 8 billion kilowatt-hours of green power, and many of the organizations on this list are purchasing more than 100% of their electricity use in green energy. That’s something we can all celebrate.

Check out the U.S. EPA’s Top 50 National list here, and learn more about Intel’s environmental sustainability initiatives on our website.
