Check this great list of the top 25 U.S. consumers of green energy. It is, first of all, a tribute to some good corporate citizens like Johnson & Johnson, as well as companies that have made being green part of their business strategy (Whole Foods, Starbucks).

It’s also revealing the consumer No.1 is the U.S. Air Force, which is undoubtedly more interested in the reliability of power in a crisis than in joining Whole Foods’ campaign to green up the environment. It makes the point – better than we could – that alternative energy is good policy for lots of reasons, even beyond the benefit of saving the planet.
