Eagles Win 'Stevie' for Going Green

August 2008 - The Philadelphia Eagles football team was recognized with a Stevie award for Best Corporate Environmental Responsibility Program, for its Go Green environmental program. As part of the program, the Eagles are purchasing about 14 million kWh of wind energy RECs per year from NativeEnergy, or the equivalent of 100% of the team's electricity use for its operations, including those of its football stadium, training facility, and office complex. The Eagles also reimburse employees who purchase wind energy for their home use through the PECO Wind and New Jersey Clean Power programs, also giving them each two compact-fluorescent light bulbs for Earth Day to help offset the extra cost.

Initiated in 2003, the Go Green program also features a 9.9 kilowatt solar array generating about 16,000 kWh per year, at the team's NovaCare Complex training facility in Philadelphia. The Complex features a Web site displaying real-time generation data for the array.
