ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Whole Foods Market Inc., the world's largest natural foods grocery chain, has made a landmark purchase of renewable energy credits from wind farms to offset 100 percent of the electricity used in all of its stores, regional offices and national headquarters in the United States and Canada. This is the largest wind energy credit purchase in the history of the United States and Canada and makes Whole Foods Market the only Fortune 500 Company purchasing wind energy credits to offset all of its electricity use. Whole Foods cannot get its power directly from renewable energy sources, like most businesses. Whole Foods has chosen Boulder, Colorado-based Renewable Choice Energy as its exclusive supplier of renewable energy credits after an extensive search process. Renewable Choice Energy is a leading national provider building the market for clean and renewable sources of energy.
