Environmental Protection Agency says D.C. is No. 1 in green

March 21, 2011 |

Less than a month after the U.S. Green Building Council gave D.C. top honors for green building, the Environmental Protection Agency has named the District the top green city.

The EPA names the District the nation's leading EPA Green Power Community. It says the D.C. government, businesses, institutions and residents are purchasing nearly 756 million kilowatt-hours of green power a year—enough to meet 8% of the city's total electric use.
