DuPont Joins EPA’s List of Green Power Purchasers

DuPont’s purchase of 170 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable energy certificates for electricity generated from biomass and wind energy makes it seventh on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Top 25 list of the largest green power purchasers in the nation’s Green Power Partnership.

Other measures taken by DuPont include using renewable energy sources such as landfill gas; reducing its greenhouse gas emissions 72 percent since 1990 and avoiding more than $3 billion in energy costs. In addition to its products for photovoltaic solar panels, fuel cells and bio-based materials and biofuels, DuPont recently launched DuPont Tyvek AtticWrap, the first breathable roofing membrane to completely seal a home’s building envelope. Used in combination with DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap, an airtight building envelope that surrounds the entire home saves up to 20 percent on energy costs. The EPA’s Green Power Partnership now has more than 600 Partners voluntarily purchasing more than 6.8 billion kWh of green power.
