Green Power Partnership

Green Power Communities

Leading local governments across the nation are partnering with EPA to become Green Power Communities (GPCs). GPCs are towns, villages, cities, counties, or tribal governments in which the local government, businesses, and residents collectively use green power in amounts that meet or exceed EPA's Green Power Community usage requirements.

Green Power Community Rankings

Since EPA tracks and reports the Green Power Communities collective green power use and green power percentage of total electricity use, it ranks GPCs according to these same two categories: total green power usage and percentage of green power used. As of the end of calendar year 2020, EPA recognized 100 EPA Green Power Communities across 14 states and DC collectively more than 8.4 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually by way of local government, business and residential use of green power.
