We've seen an increasing trend over the last few years of NFL teams "going green" and making energy efficiency a priority by adding energy-efficiency measures with the help of utility incentives and rebates, such as HVAC system and server room (which consume more than 75 billion kilowatt-hours annually or the equivalent output of 26 medium-sized coal-fired power plants, according to the U.S. Natural Resources Defense Council) upgrades, to their sports arenas and stadiums. Teams noted for their efforts include the Giants, Seahawks, Packers and Bears.
The start of the New Year is always an exciting time, especially when you have goals to achieve or milestones to celebrate. It's no different for utilities, many of which are ringing in the New Year on a high note.
In response to the large number of requests for more time, we are pleased to announce that we have extended the entry period for the Fierce Innovation Awards: Energy Edition by one week. Applications will now be accepted through midnight, ET this Friday, August 29.
