Juno Beach, Fla.-based FPL Energy LLC, a subsidiary of FPL Group Inc., has joined with the Emerald Bowl to make the game between the University of California and University of Miami environmentally friendly. FPL Energy will supply Green-e certified wind renewable energy certificates to the Emerald Bowl to match the electricity consumption.
‘College bowl games provide a platform to educate fans on climate initiatives, and we feel that the best way we can educate is to lead by example,’ says Gary Cavalli, executive director of the Emerald Bowl. ‘With FPL Energy, we will lessen the environmental impact of the game as well as promote environmental awareness to a broad audience of sports enthusiasts.’
