FLORIDA'S FOOTBALL GOES GREEN TODAY--NO, NOT TIM TEBOW

Today, the City of Tampa is hosting the "other" football game--the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game with Clemson and Georgia Tech.

Tampa Electric (TECO) announced that the entire stadium will be powered by
renewable solar and biomass energy. The company estimates that powering the ACC game with renewable energy will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 100,000 pounds, the equivalent of taking 75 cars off the road for a month.


In 2008, the Florida Public Service Commission approved a one-time renewable energy purchase plan for utility customers that allows an organization such as the Tampa Bay Sports Commission to purchase renewable energy for their event on a one-time basis.


Currently TECO generates electricity to its customers through its natural gas and coal powered plants.
