Top Green Power Users in the US

What do Whole Foods and the nation's capitol have in common?  They both rank among the top 50 organizations in the US that consume the most green power as measured in kilowatt hours.  It is status they share with the US Air Force, Staples, and Suffolk County, NY, according to the EPA.

If you're curious about on site generation of green power like a solar array on rooftops or small scale wind, San Diego and Coca-Cola are high on that list, officially dubbed Top 20 On Site Generation.  Meanwhile, it's interesting that three Texas cities rank highly on the Top 20 Local Governments list of green energy users.

Every quarter, the EPA publishes these somewhat inspiring and hopeful lists.  Check them all out.  Click on a few, scroll, enjoy.
