ENGIE Resources, the third-largest non-residential electricity provider in the U.S., announced that it has entered into a multi-year electricity generation contract to power Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. As part of the agreement, both ENGIE Resources and its small commercial and residential brand, Think Energy, will share in the designation as the team's official electricity supplier.

Cubs executives involved in negotiating the contract said there were several key factors, including the company's ability to meet a number of specific product and price requirements, which contributed to the selection of ENGIE Resources. 

"As we searched for competitive energy prices for Wrigley Field and our other facilities, ENGIE Resources emerged as the clear choice for becoming the team's official power provider," said Alex Sugarman, Cubs Senior Vice President of Strategy and Ballpark Operations. "Doing business with an industry leader like ENGIE Resources ensures we can capitalize on the most economic market opportunities for electricity. It also helps communicate to our fans that they have a choice when it comes to energy providers in Chicago." 

Built in 1914, Wrigley Field in 2016 began its 102nd season in Major League Baseball and its 100th year as the home of the Cubs.  The ballpark has been the site of a number of historic moments in baseball.  This includes Babe Ruth's "called shot," when Ruth purportedly pointed to the bleachers during the third game of the 1932 World Series and then hit Charlie Root's next pitch in that exact location for a home run.
