Green Power Partnership
What is the Green Power Partnership? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Partnership is a voluntary program that encourages organizations to buy green power to reduce the environmental impacts of their electricity use. The Partnership currently has more than 1,300 Partner organizations who purchase more than 17 billion kilowatt-hours of green power each year. Partners include Fortune 500® companies, small and medium sized businesses, local, state, and federal governments, and colleges and universities. For more information visit EPA's Green Power website.
