Philadelphia Phillies ‘Green Power’ Champs Of National League
The Philadelphia Phillies have purchased 20 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) to serve the ball club’s 43,500-seat Citizens Bank Park, according to the EPA.
The Pittsburgh Pirates recently launched a green initiative dubbed Let’s Go Bucs. Let’s Go Green.
The purchase puts the Phillies at the top of the rankings of green power purchasers in major league baseball, and the leader overall among major U.S. professional sports teams in EPA’s Green Power Partnership.
Among the organizations in EPA’s Green Power Partnership, the Phillies are the third largest green power purchaser in Philadelphia and seventh largest in Pennsylvania.
Overall, more than 950 Green Power Partners are buying more than 14 billion kWh of green power annually — enough to power nearly 1.5 million average American homes for one year.
