Intel Continues to Lead in Green Power Purchasing Awards

Intel Continues to Lead in Green Power Purchasing Awards

Since 2008, Intel has been the nation's number-one voluntary purchaser of renewable energy, and with the announcement of the 2010 Green Power Leadership Awards from the U.S. EPA, the company is holding tight to its lead.

The company is one of 18 winners of the Green Power Partnership awards announced today at the Renewable Energy Markets Conference, which recognizes companies and municipalities for their efforts to grow the market for renewable energy in the U.S.

Intel was awarded the prize for increasing its green power usage by 10 percent in 2010, from approximately 1.3 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) to more than 1.4 billion kWh, equal to more than 50 percent of its U.S. electric use.

Other companies awarded Green Power Leadership awards for their commitments to renewables are international media company Pearson, Harris Bank, BNY Mellon, and BD.

The EPA also named several companies as Green Power Partners of the Year. The four companies on the list are Kohl's, Motorola, TD Bank, and Whole Foods Market.
