The EPA lists the K-12 school systems taking part in the Green Power Partnership that are the largest users of green power.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has compiled a list of the U.S. K-12 school systems that are the largest users of green power among those who take part in the agency's Green Power Partnership.

The latest list of green K-12 schools, released in January, placed the Tucson Unified District at the top of the list as the largest user of green power

The EPA established the Green Power Partnership in 2001 to encourage voluntary green power use and advance the U.S. market for green power and the development of  renewable electricity sources.
