14 Green Energy Buyers Team Up in California

The newly announced partnership of the "Green Power Group – California Affiliates" will enable members to share best practices for purchasing and developing new sources of renewable energy.

Advanced Micro Devices, Apple Inc., BT Americas, Cisco Systems, eBay, Google Inc., Hewlett-Packard, Intel Corporation, Intuit, Levi Strauss & Co., News Corporation, Pactiv Corporation, Patagonia, and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., are members of the partnership.

The Green Power Group – California Affiliates is the third commercial and industrial partnership convened by the World Resources Institute. The first two partnerships, the U.S. Green Power Market Development Group and the European Green Power Market Development Group, have facilitated the development of over 600 megawatts of renewable energy through on-site projects and green power purchases. The California Affiliates will build on this experience to bring corporate renewable energy purchasing to significant scale in California.

"The commercial and industrial sectors can play a critical role in supporting renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies," said Alexander Perera, director of the institute's Green Power Market Development Group. "By working together, these companies hope to see improved green-power purchasing opportunities in the state."
