APS Provides Green Energy For ASU’s Homecoming Football Game
TEMPE, Ariz. – When Arizona State University hosts Utah on Saturday, the grass will not be the only thing green at Sun Devil Stadium — so will the electricity.
This year, Sun Devil Athletics purchased 49,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy from Arizona Public Service, which translates to enough green energy to power the stadium for the next three home games.
This is the sixth consecutive year ASU and APS have partnered to bring green sources of electricity to Sun Devil Stadium.
On game day, the first 10,000 fans inside the gates will receive a Sparky mask with APS Energy Analyzer info on it so fans can learn how to save both energy and money.
“Sustainability is an important component of the Sun Devil Way and it is this type of innovation that keeps us at the forefront of collegiate athletics,” Vice President for University Athletics Ray Anderson said. “We could not have better a partner in this endeavour than Arizona Public Service, which has worked hard for many years to make our state a true leader in the adoption of solar power.”
Through the APS Renewable Energy Incentive Program, ASU has installed more than 50 projects on three of its campuses, for a total of nearly 24 MW of solar generation. ASU now has more solar installed on its campus than any other university in the country.
