THEY CALL IT "Red Goes Green." What it means is that the Phillies are going to buy their electricity from wind and solar generation as a way to help the environment and provide jobs in the state.
The team has agreed to buy more than 22 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy credits, matching 100 percent of its electricity usage over two years. The team will get a large chunk of the biggest solar project in Pennsylvania, now under development by Community Energy Inc. in Lancaster County. The Keystone Solar Project is a 6-megawatt ground-mounted plant that will produce about 7.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually. It's the equivalent of powering 950 homes or avoiding 4,200 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
