The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently updated its 2006 year-end lists of the Top Green Power purchasers within the Green Power Partnership. Each list highlights EPA Green Power Partners that have completed the largest annual voluntary purchases. The Top Partner lists are available at www.epa.gov/greenpower/partners/index.htm

Wells Fargo leads the national Top 25 list of green power purchasers for first time with 550 million kWh of green power usage. New partners to the list include Cisco Systems Inc., ranked number 11, New York University, ranked number 13, U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, ranked number 18, and Kohl’s Department Stores, ranked number 23. The combined purchases of the Top 25 equal more than 4.4 billion kWh of green power, which is enough electricity to power 356,000 average American homes.
