Eight other entities - ING, Merritt 7 Venture, Oregon State University, PepsiCo, Powdr Resorts, Estee Lauder, Philadelphia Phillies, and the U.S. Air Force - were also honored in the category.

In addition, five entities - Bellingham (Wash.) College, Cisco, Intel, University of Pennsylvania, and WhiteWave Foods - were honored as Green Power Partners. Two - Lundberg Family Farms and Kohls - were cited for On-Site Generation.
