PepsiCo has committed to purchasing 100 percent green power, making it the largest corporate green power purchase in the U.S. to date.

The green power purchase is more than 1.1 billion kilowatt-hours, which is enough to power 90,000 average homes each year.

PepsiCo now leads the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership, a group of more than 700 organizations that voluntarily purchase green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use.

The Top 25 list of the Green Power Partnership recognizes the nation's largest purchasers of green power, which comes from eligible renewable resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and biogas, as well as low-impact hydropower.

PepsiCo now heads the list, followed by: Wells Fargo, Whole Food Market, U.S. Air Force, Johnson & Johnson, U.S EPA, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts, Starbucks, DuPont Co. and the U.S. Department of Energy.
