Green Power Partnership Program Results
Since 2001, the Partnership has made considerable progress in addressing market barriers to green power procurement and use. The GPP brings value to its Partners by offering technical resources and recognizing environmental leadership.
At the end of calendar year 2020, more than 700 EPA Green Power Partners were using a total of nearly 70 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which:
- Is equivalent to the annual electricity use of nearly 6.6 million average American homes. 1
- Represents nearly 43 percent of the total voluntary green power market in the United States. 2
- Represents nearly 2 percent of total annual retail electricity sales in the United States. 3
