The top five retailers on the list remain unchanged, and are in rank order: Kohl’s Department Stores, Whole Foods Market, Walmart, Staples and Starbucks. Kohl’s also has the distinction of being ranked third on the National Top 100 list, topped only by Intel and Microsoft, ranked No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.

“Green power purchases are an effective and important way we can implement renewable energy sources to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Ken Bonning of Kohl's, which uses 1.54 billion kilowatt hours in annual green power. ”As an EPA Sustained Excellence Award winner, we have increased our purchases company wide, achieving 100 percent green power in 2010, 2011 and 2012. We are pleased to have extended this commitment through 2015.”

New to the National Top 100 list is Google Inc. (No. 6), using more than 737 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, the bulk of which is supplied by two 20-year bundled Power Purchase Agreements. As part of the EPA’s Green Power Partnership, more than 1,500 organizations are using more than 29 billion kilowatt-hours of green power annually, avoiding carbon pollution equal to that created by the electricity use of more than three million American homes.
