Road to Omaha

From the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy:

For the first time in the 69-year history of the College World Series baseball tournament, the #RoadToOmahais paved with green energy. The college #baseballchampionship tournament starting today at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha has purchased enough renewable #energy certificates to match every megawatt-hour of #electricity used to power the two-week event. The renewable credits will pay for the power generated from the pictured wind farm in the small town of Petersburg, #Nebraska. Our wind program works with electric grid operators, utilities, regulators and industry to create new strategies for incorporating #wind energy into America’s power system while maintaining economic and reliable operation of the grid. Learn more about these efforts, which could help other major events like the College World Series go green:
