EPA Finally goes green

EPA just announced 100 percent of its power consumption at its Washington, D.C. headquarters will be supplied by green, renewable power, and the majority of energy at over 30 regional and laboratory facilities will come from sustainable sources.

EPA has contracted to purchase nearly 260 million kilowatt hours of green power each year for 10 of the agency's offices and 21 laboratories, which places them among the top three green-power consumers in the country. Only the U.S. Air Force and Whole Foods Markets buy more green power.

I know, you'd think they would have done this 30 years ago. It's about damn time.
