Clean electricity from Green Mountain Energy Company helps make operations more sustainable
Grand Prairie, TX – The Grand Prairie AirHogs have signed on to purchase renewable electricity from Green Mountain Energy Company to make its stadium operations more sustainable. Powering the ballpark with 100% clean electricity will reduce carbon dioxide emissions and help lower the organization’s overall environmental footprint.
“The AirHogs are excited to be working with Green Mountain Energy on initiatives to utilize renewable energy and promote sustainability,” said John Bilbow, executive vice president and general manager of the Grand Prairie AirHogs. “It’s important that we understand our impact on the environment, and that we do what we can to make improvements in our energy consumption.”
Adding to its sustainability initiatives, the Grand Prairie AirHogs are also working to revitalize a recycling program that will enhance waste distribution efforts at the stadium, which hosts over half of a million visitors every year.
“One of the most impactful ways to support the environment is choosing clean energy, and we’re thrilled to see how 100% renewable energy from Green Mountain impacts the AirHogs’ sustainability efforts and brings additional awareness about the range of clean energy solutions to AirHogs fans,” said Mark McShane, vice president of Green Mountain Energy.
The Grand Prairie AirHogs have signed on as a 100% renewable energy customer through 2018.
