October 28, 2015 By Karen Henry

Green Power Usage EPA Energy ManageWalmart, Apple and the US Department of Energy are the top three on-site renewable power users, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency’s list of Green Power Partners. Coca-Cola and General Motors round out the top five.

As of October 26, 307 organizations have joined the EPA’s Green Power Partnership, using a total of more than 1.1 billion kWh of on-site renewable power.

The Partnership tracks all Partners’ annual combined on-site renewable energy use and updates the Top Partner lists on a quarterly basis. Since releasing the July Top Partner list, Partner organizations’ use of on-site renewable energy has increased by almost 30 million kWh.

The Green Power Partnership launched the On-Site Renewables Challenge in 2014 with the goal of doubling the use of on-site green power by Green Power Partners by the end of the decade.
