NFL Greens Super Bowl Week for Third Consecutive Year

December 2008 - Tampa Electric Company (TECO) announced that it will provide green power for 100% of the electricity needs of Super Bowl XLIII on February 1, 2009. Under the agreement, TECO will supply Florida-based renewable energy for the game at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, as well as the five-day NFL Experience festival, for a total of 187,000 kWh. The renewable energy will be sourced in part from biomass and solar power. The purchase was made possible by state regulators’ recent approval of a new offering that allows TECO to sell blocks of renewable energy to customers for one-time events.

To help offset the game’s carbon impact, the National Football League (NFL) will also plant 2,700 trees at a dozen sites in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the Florida Division of Wildlife, and the Florida Division of Forestry. The NFL’s environmental program began in 1992 with recycling and has expanded to include green power and urban forestry.
