500 million is a big time number, so big, it has landed Pennsylvania a place in the top five. The U.S Environmental Protection Agency released its list of top 50 businesses that use the most renewable electricity.
And, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the government itself, takes the top five spot by purchasing 500 million kilowatt hours of green power.
