Top 30 Local Government icon.The Top 30 Local Government list represents the largest green power users among local government partners within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power use of these organizations amounts to more than 3.8 billion kilowatt-hours annually, which is equivalent to the electricity use of more than 349,000 average American homes annually.

Using 100 percent renewable energy is not only good for our community and the environment, it furthers Evanston’s goal of being the most livable city in America.
- Mayor Elilzabeth Tisdahl, City of Evanston

Usage figures are based on annualized Partner contract amounts (kilowatt-hours), not calendar year totals. These rankings are updated on a quarterly schedule. Find out how your organization can partner with EPA today! To view a top partner list, select from the chart below:
