TEMPE, Ariz. – When Arizona State University hosts No. 20 Washington on Saturday, Oct. 19, the grass will not be the only thing green at Sun Devil Stadium — so will the electricity used at the stadium.
IMG College and ASU Athletics purchased 49,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy from Arizona Public Service. This is enough green energy to power the stadium during the game.
This is the fifth consecutive year ASU and APS have held a Green Game at Sun Devil Stadium during Homecoming Weekend.
On game day, an APS booth near Wells Fargo Arena will provide energy saving tips and host an enter-to-win apparel contest. The booth will also feature the APS solar trailer, which can provide clean, solar energy.
Through the APS Renewable Energy Incentive Program, ASU has installed more than 50 projects on three of its campuses, for a total of nearly 18 MW of solar generation. ASU now has more solar installed on its campus than any other university in the country.
