Super Bowl 46 LogoThe National Football League (NFL) has been “greening” the management of Super Bowl for 18 years.

This year, together with the Indianapolis, Indiana Super Bowl XLVI Host Committee, the NFL has extended the use of green power to all six major Super Bowl facilities. Everything from the computers in the Motorola Super Bowl XLVI Media Centre to the lights that shine down on the teams as they compete during the Super Bowl will be powered by green energy.

Green Mountain Energy Company was selected to supply 15,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to offset greenhouse gas emissions associated with the electricity used at the major NFL venues. These include Lucas Oil Stadium, site of Super Bowl XLVI; the Indiana Convention Centre, site of the NFL Experience Football Theme Park; and all four of the major NFL hotels including the NFL Headquarters, the Super Bowl Media Centre, and the American Football Conference (AFC) team hotel for the New England Patriots and National Football Conference (NFC) team hotel for the New York Giants.
