Green Power Partnership
Green Power Equivalency Calculator
Due to recently released Scope 2 guidance EPA recommends that Partners use equivalency statements based on equivalent kilowatt-hours. For example, [Organization's] purchase of [x] million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power is the equivalent to the power used by [x] average American homes.
The conversion factor for this equivalency statement is [your green power purchase in kWh]/[10,909 kWh per average American home].* If you have any questions regarding marketing claims or equivalency statements please contact Melissa Klein at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 343-9207.
