Green Power Partnership
Top 20 Tech & Telecom
The Top 20 Tech & Telecom list represents the largest green power users among technology and telecommunications partners within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power use of these organizations amounts to more than 7 billion kilowatt-hours annually, which is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of more than 748,000 average American homes annually.
As of July 3, 2013
The Green Power Partnership works with a wide variety of leading organizations — from Fortune 500® companies to local, state and federal governments, and a growing number of colleges and universities. The following Top Partner Rankings highlight the annual green power use of leading Green Power Partners within the United States and across individual industry sectors.
Using green power helps reduce the environmental impacts of electricity use and supports the development of new renewable generation capacity nationwide. Usage amounts reflect U.S. operations only and are sourced from U.S.-based green power resources. Organizations can meet EPA Partnership requirements using any combination of three different product options: (1) Renewable Energy Certificates, (2) On-site generation, and (3) Utility green power products.
Our efforts to expand our use of renewable energy products and significantly improve our energy efficiency demonstrate our commitment to reduce our environmental impact and leading the industry toward cleaner energy solutions.
