The Blackhawks “green game” is slated for their game against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday, April 1 and the Bulls “green game” will be on Monday, April 2 when they host the Houston Rockets.
Both teams will have Green-e® Energy Certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) retired on their behalf to match the electricity use on each game day at the United Center. The RECs used for these games represent the environmental benefit of electricity generated by wind and therefore avoid carbon dioxide emissions.
This purchase of RECs supplements other sustainability efforts currently underway for both teams. For example, the Blackhawks are part of Chicago Gateway Green, a comprehensive community educational initiative that provides the opportunity for the team’s staff and fans to help lead environmental efforts. The Chicago Bulls Go Green’s program provides fans with information about the Bulls’ green iniaitives as well as with energy savings tips.
