North Dakota wind power to offset Super Bowl electricity

January 30th, 20123:51 am @


FARGO, N.D. — Power generated in North Dakota is going to be used to offset some of the electricity used in Indianapolis on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Fargo Forum reports that renewable energy credits from power generated from wind farms near Langdon and north of Valley City will offset 15,000 megawatt hours of electricity associated with the game on Feb. 5.

Green Mountain Energy Co. in Austin, Texas, provided the credits, which were acquired from Minnkota Power Cooperative, based in Grand Forks.

The carbon offsets are associated with the electricity used at Lucas Oil Stadium, which is where the game is played; the Indiana Convention Center, site of the NFL Experience Football Theme Park; and four hotels hosting Super Bowl participants and media.
