Staples is purchasing Green Power Switch® for five of its locations in the Tennessee Valley. These stores are served by the EPB in Chattanooga, TN; Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB) in Knoxville, TN; Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation (MTEMC) in Murfreesboro, TN; Sevier County Electric System in Sevierville, TN; and Huntsville Utilities in Huntsville, AL. Staples is purchasing 25 blocks of green power at each location.

They are the first office supply company to be a Green Power Switch subscriber, and they set a powerful example, not only for their customers, but for all chain accounts throughout the Valley,” says Cindy Roach Weiss, TVA Regional Accounts Manager.

Staples is a $11.6 billion retailer of office supplies, business services, furniture and technology to consumers and businesses, from home-based businesses to Fortune 500 companies in North America and throughout Europe.

Staples is participating in three green power initiatives nationwide, including TVA’s Green Power Switch program. The retailer also participates in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, which is a voluntary program designed to reduce the environmental impacts of electricity generation by promoting renewable energy. In 1999, the EPA honored Staples with a Green Lights Retail Partner of the Year Award. For more information on Staples visit
