Intel LogoBelieve it or not, but Intel has become the “largest purchaser of Green Power in the U.S” and they’re boasting about. Posted on the Press Release portion of their site, Intel says they bought more than 1.3 billion kilowatt hours a year (yes BILLION) of renewable energy certificates. This makes Intel the single largest corporate purchaser of green power in the U.S. If you’re wondering what the hell 1.3 billion kilowatt hours equates to, then you’ll be glad to know it’s the equivalent of taking 185,000 cars of the road each year!
