Find out more about EPA's Top Partner Lists

Released on July 28, 2014

National Top 100 icon.The National Top 100 list represents the largest green power users within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power usage of these Top 100 Partners amount to nearly 24 billion kilowatt-hours annually, which represents nearly 87 percent of the green power commitments made by all EPA Green Power Partners.

Houston is already known as the energy capital of the world, but we are committed to becoming the alternative energy capital of the world as well. Purchasing green power reduces the environmental impacts of electricity use, decreases the cost of renewable power over time and supports the development of new renewable generation.
- Mayor Annise Parker, City of Houston

Usage figures are based on annualized Partner contract amounts (kilowatt-hours), not calendar year totals. These rankings are updated on a quarterly schedule. Find out how your organization can partner with EPA today! To view a top partner list, select from the chart below:
