Released on July 28, 2014

Onsite Goal MeterIn support of President Obama's Climate Action Plan (PDF) (21 pp, 311K, About PDF), the Green Power Partnership has launched the On-site Renewables Challenge, with a goal to double the use of on-site green power by Green Power Partners by the end of the decade.

The Partnership will track all Partners' annual combined on-site renewable energy use, which will be updated quarterly. As part of the Challenge, EPA invites Partners to increase the amount of energy they produce and use from on-site renewables by the end of the decade. In support of the launch of the Challenge, these Green Power Partners have committed to increase on-site generation at their facilities.

Green Power Partners that use on-site green power are listed below. Interested in supporting the Challenge? Check out our Join Us page for more information, or contact us.
