Last year we were recognized as the No. 1 on-site generator of green power by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership – and we’re proud to maintain the top spot in the latest rankings released this week.

Our ultimate goal is to be supplied by 100 percent renewable energy. Today, we have over 200 renewable energy projects across the country. And just this year, we announced new solar installations in Hawaii, OhioMassachusetts and Maryland. The EPA mentions our nearly 175 billion kWh usage of green power, which includes solar, wind, biogas and fuel cells.

The ranking is important to us because it reflects the direct investments we’ve made in green power for our stores, clubs and distribution centers. We believe it helps us make real change and promote renewable energy so it’s sustainable for our business and our planet.
