Green Power Partners

Green Power Partners are commercial, industrial, and public sector companies and organizations that agree to procure an amount of green power proportional to their annual electricity use.

The Green Power Partnership encourages organizations to buy green power as a way to lessen the environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use. Using conventional fossil fuel based electricity can be one of the greatest environmental impacts associated with your organization.

Organizations can lessen environmental impact through a green power purchase. Renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, biomass and low-impact hydro generate green power. A green power resource produces electricity with zero anthropogenic (caused by humans) emissions, has a superior environmental profile to conventional power generation, and was built after the beginning of the voluntary market (1/1/1997).

Partnering with EPA’s Green Power Partnership is an easy and effective way for your organization to display its environmental leadership while reducing its impact on the environment. EPA works with a wide variety of leading organizations such as Fortune 500 companies, local, state, and federal governments, trade associations, as well as colleges and universities.

Organizations, companies or communities interested in buying green power will find important information on the procurement process, on how to receive EPA support, as well as on earning valuable recognition.

Which Renewable Energy?

To be considered renewable energy, a resource must rely on naturally existing energy flows such as sunshine, wind and water flowing. The energy source, or “fuel”, must be replaced by natural processes at a rate that is equal to, or faster than, the rate at which the energy source is consumed. Renewable resources can have inherent and varying technological, environmental, social, and economic benefits.

Currently, renewable energy accounts for roughly 2.3% of the United States energy supply. EPA’s Green Power Partnership recognizes solar, biomass, geothermal, wind and low-impact hydro as eligible green power resources due to their respective environmental benefits and expressed consumer preference in voluntary green power markets.
