The Environmental Protection Agency…just released its list of the top 20 organizations running on “green power“, or energy from solar, wind, and biogas sources.Many of the top purchasers of on-site renewable energy are cities, but we’ve weeded out the non-corporate entities in the list below. Take the rankings with a grain of salt; Kimberly-Clark is ranked first, and as we’ve pointed out before, the company’s fiber-gathering practices are not exactly kosher. At the same time, the lower-ranked Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has other green initiatives going for it. Regardless, it’s encouraging to see so many big names embracing renewable energy.

1. Kimberly-Clark Corporation, 192,730,000 kWh of green power produced annually

2. CalPortland, 50,000,000 kWh

3. BMW Manufacturing Co./Greer, SC Facilities, 27,831,000 kWh

4. Kohl’s Department Stores, 19,126,000 kWh

5. Wal-Mart Stores/California and Texas Facilities, 17,000,000 kWh

6. Johnson & Johnson, 11,626,910 kWh

7. Macy’s Inc./California and Hawaii Stores, 10,400,000 kWh

8. Safeway Inc., 4,500,000 kWh

9. Sierra Nevada Brewing Companies, 4,203,840 kWh
