EPA Honors (a few) outdoor companies

The EPA announced award recipients for several green energy market leaders. Among the companies honored were prAna, Aspen, and Vail. While several big outdoor and snowsports names were noticeably absent from the list, there was one bit of good news in the release.

According to a new report released this week by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, at the end of 2005, more than 2,000 megawatts (MW) of new renewables capacity was being used to supply green power markets. This represents a 10-fold increase from the year 2000.
