Over the past few years, the Boston Red Sox have switched to 100 percent clean, renewable electricity, becoming one of only four Major League Baseball teams to offset their power consumption.

This spring, the Red Sox were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a Green Power Partner for using green power for all of 2017, an achievement they have managed to maintain this season. To do this, the Red Sox purchased Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) that will offset their power consumption for the next two years.

Their annual green power usage goes above 14 million kilowatt hours and follows in a long 10-year history of the Red Sox going green. Their past initiatives include being the 2016 Bay State recycler of the year, using sustainable locally sourced food, a free bike valet service, composting, and installing solar hot water panels at Fenway in 2008.
