The prestigious list, called the Carbon Clean 200, ranks companies according to the size of their revenues from clean energy sources.

First Gen ranked 113rd with estimated clean energy revenues of $632 million in 2017,l while EDC occupied the 139th slot with estimated clean energy revenues of $494.72 million.
