Super Bowl XLVI to be powered up by renewable energy

Renewable energy's growing prominence is indicated by its importance to America's most important sporting occasions.

This year, together with the Indianapolis Super Bowl XLVI Host Committee, the NFL has extended the use of ’green‘ power to all six major Super Bowl facilities.

Everything from the computers in the Motorola Super Bowl XLVI Media Center to the lights that shine down on the teams as they compete during Super Bowl will be powered by green energy.

Green Mountain Energy Company was selected to supply 15000 MWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to offset greenhouse gas emissions associated with the electricity used at the major NFL venues.

These include Lucas Oil Stadium, site of Super Bowl XLVI, the Indiana Convention Center, site of the NFL Experience Football Theme Park, and all four of the major NFL hotels including the NFL Headquarters, the Super Bowl Media Center, and the AFC and NFC team hotels .

Overall, the RECs will avoid more than 14000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions associated with Super Bowl electricity consumption over the course of the month-long period leading up to and immediately following Super Bowl XLVI.
