Green Power!

According to PennFuture, the Air Force and Whole Foods Market are leaders on the United States Environmental Protection Agency's list of the leading purchasers of green power in 2005. The Air Force purchased 321 megawatts of power from renewable energy sources last year and made over 40% of all federal purchases of green energy in fiscal year 2004. Dyess Air Force Base in Texas is 100% powered by renewable energy. Whole Foods Market purchased over 20% of its national electricity needs from green energy sources and some of their stores are 100 percent green-powered. Five stores in California and New Jersey have solar panels to generate electricity on-site. The University of Pennsylvania and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania also finished in the top 25 on this list.
