Green Power Leadership Award Winners Named

I read two different kinds of articles about renewable energy these days. In one variety, technological advances are touted (battery storage, new equipment, more sophisticated control networks). In the other, anecdotal stories about this or that company installing and/or sourcing solar or wind power are described. The EPA brings these two strands of reporting together once a year when it announces its Green Power Leadership Awards. This year’s winners, who are “furthering the business case for clean energy use,” are: Biogen, BNY Mellon, Forest County Potawatomi Community, Goldman Sachs, Government of the District of Columbia, Intel, SC Johnson, Cisco Systems, Jackson Family Winds, University at Buffalo, Apple Kohl’s Department Stores, General Motors/GM Orion Assembly Plant, Google and HARBEC. Read the whole story here.
