The City of Houston has cracked the top 10 on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s top green power purchasers list.
Houston ranked fourth (http://www.epa.gov/greenpower/partners/partners/cityofhoustontx.ht - broken link) on the list, with 438 million kilowatt-hours of annual green power usage, accounting for 34 percent of the city’s total power. Most of Houston’s renewable energy comes from wind power.

Couldnt help but notice the city of Dallas ranked 10 and the city of Austin ranked 50. Those are the only cities on the whole list.

Seems the only cities listed aside from Houston, Dallas, and Austin were Chicago, Washington DC, and Portland.
