EPA Recognizes Dell As A Leading Green Power Purchaser

Dell today announced that it has received a 2013 Green Power Leadership Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The annual awards recognize the country’s leading green power purchasers for their contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market and for their commitment to purchasing green power from a utility green-pricing program, a competitive green marketer or a renewable energy certificate (REC) supplier.

Dell was one of only eight organizations nationwide to receive a Leadership Award for purchasing green power, which is electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, biogas, eligible biomass, and low-impact hydro. Dell is currently purchasing nearly 218 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 48 percent of the organization’s U.S. electricity use.

“EPA is pleased to recognize Dell with a Green Power Purchasing award for its exceptional commitment to buying green power and reducing carbon pollution associated with its electricity use,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “In doing so, Dell has demonstrated leadership in innovation, sustainability, and taking action on climate change.”

Using green power accelerates the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector. According to the EPA, Dell’s current green power purchase of nearly 218 million kWh is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions of nearly 32,000 passenger vehicles per year. It would also take approximately 3.9 million tree seedlings grown for 10 years to absorb that equivalent amount of carbon dioxide.

“The use of renewable energy has been an important part of Dell’s sustainability programs since 2003, and an integral part of our commitment to Powering the Possible,” said Dane Parker, Vice President of Global Facilities and EHS. “We are delighted to be recognized by EPA as a leader in green power purchasing.”
