US Top 10 green energy dependent companies

The Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) announced the names of the top 10 green energy dependent companies in the States. When I came across the article, I was told it would be a shock considering the companies present. The list comes from the fact that the Green Power Partners program increased their commitments more than 1.5 billion kilowatts-hours(KWh) in 2009. Being an electrical student, that’s a lot of energy.

The program partners are buying 18 billion KWh that putting in comparison to the annual CO2 emissions from electricity usage of about 1.8 million Americans.

The top 10 green energy partners in 2009 were:

1. Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) – 51% of its total electricity comes from clean energy sources (1.4 billion KWh come from green power).

2. Kohl’s Department Store (NYSE:KSS) – 100% of its total electricity comes from clean energy sources (1.3 billion KWh come from green power).

3. Pepsi Co. (NYSE:PEP) – 100% of its total electricity comes from clean energy sources (1.2 billion KWh come from green power).

4. Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFMI) – 105% of its total electricity comes from clean energy sources (790 million KWh come from green power).

5. City of Houston Texas – 34% of its total electricity comes from clean energy sources (438 million KWh come from green power).

6. Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) – 129% of its total electricity comes from clean energy sources (431 million KWh come from green power).
