The green energy excitement in Chicago this past week was powered by tremendous support from both the Chicago Cubs and White Sox organizations which created history with strategic sponsorships that delivered their first games powered by 100 percent renewable energy certificates.
Constellation Energy is proud that we had the opportunity to join with both baseball teams to commemorate Earth Day and share our offers of 10, 50 or 100 percent green energy with more than 2 million ComEd customers in Chicagoland when these customers choose Constellation as their electricity supplier.
To get a closer look at some of the excitement we captured at Wrigley Field’s first green game on Saturday, April 23, watch the video below.
Across town, preparations have been under way for the April 30 White Sox game where scores of White Sox employees will sport bright green T-shirts on game day to promote the first green game at the “Cell.” In addition, a large cadre of volunteers will exercise their green thumb and pitch in for a special tree-planting near the ballpark before the game.
Constellation Energy supported both green games by purchasing renewable energy certificates (RECs) to cover the energy use on game day. The Green-e Energy certified RECs represent the environmental benefits of electricity generated by wind, solar or other renewable power facilities. By matching the electricity used at the games with RECs, the Cubs and White Sox are helping to avoid approximately 110,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
We are honored to support both the Cubs and White Sox and look forward to building on those relationships and bringing electricity choice to Chicagoland and Illinois residents. More information about green energy and electricity choice is available at home.constellation.com.
