Intel uses more than 2 billion killowatt-hours of green power annually according to a report from the EPA.
Intel Corp. (INTC) once again is No. 1 on the Environmental Protection Agency’s “green power” list, which ranks organizations based on their use of electricity from renewable resources such as solar, wind and low-impact hydropower.
