North Dakota powers the Super Bowl
Super Bowl XLVI is going green, thanks to North Dakota. The big game, to be played in Indianapolis, uses six major facilities during the event: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indiana Convention Center, and four hotels that house NFL Headquarters, Super Bowl Media Center, AFC and NFC teams. The NFL has purchased 15,000 megawatt hours of renewable energy certificates (RECs) from Green Mountain Energy Company to offset greenhouse gas emissions from all electricity used at the six major venues. According to WISH-TV in Indianapolis, the RECs for the game will come from wind farms in North Dakota. Read the story in the WISH-TV article of North Dakota’s green energy powering the Super Bowl.
