The New England Patriots Make a Play for Renewable Energy Credits

Constellation NewEnergy the utility that serves Gillette Stadium, is now the “Green Power Behind the Patriots.” The company plans to secure Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to match the stadium’s electricity usage with wind power before, during and after all New England Patriots pre-season, regular and post-season home games.

As part of an existing five-year agreement with the New England Patriots that commenced in 2003, and was recently extended, Constellation NewEnergy will now secure wind power for the balance of the agreement. According to Constellation NewEnergy, Gillette Stadium’s environmental practices have been a model for large- scale construction projects since ground was broken in 2000.

“The New England Patriots organization is committed to reducing our collective carbon footprint,” said Jonathan Kraft, President of the New England Patriots and The Kraft Group. “Building upon our already successful relationship with Constellation NewEnergy, we are asking them to help us meet our goal of matching each game with renewable energy.”
