The Columbian

WaferTech ranks No. 68 on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Top 100 List of the largest green power users from the Green Power Partnership, the Camas-based semiconductor contract manufacturer recently announced.

WaferTech is using nearly 155 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, which represents all of its power needs, the company says in a news release. WaferTech is No. 16 on the Green Power Partnership’s Top Tech & Telecom list.

WaferTech’s green power use of nearly 155 million kWh is equivalent to the annual electricity use of more than 14,000 average American homes, the EPA says.

WaferTech recently was also awarded the Clark County Green Business of the Year Award for 2019 in the large business category for reducing its hazardous waste levels throughout its lifetime in Clark County, as well as recycling water, Styrofoam, food waste and electronics.
