Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship to be First PGA TOUR or Champions Tour Event Powered by 100 Percent Renewable Energy
Constellation Energy (NYSE:CEG) announced Friday that the upcoming Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship will be the first-ever PGA TOUR or Champions Tour event to be powered fully by renewable energy. Now in its 25th year, the Senior Players Championship will be held Oct. 1-7, 2007, at the Baltimore Country Club in Timonium, Md.
As the title sponsor of the final major championship of the season on the Champions Tour, Constellation Energy will employ several strategies to ensure that all of the tournament's energy needs will be offset with clean, renewable energy. Through its retail electric supply business, Constellation NewEnergy, Constellation Energy will purchase an estimated 100 megawatt-hours of renewable energy credits to offset energy consumption at the clubhouse and will use on-site bio-diesel generators to power all facilities throughout the course. In addition, all plastic and cardboard generated from course concessions and tournament materials will be recycled. Additional on-site generation such as solar power will also be used, weather permitting.
Cellnet Technology (Cellnet) and Hunt Technologies (Hunt) announced today that the companies have united as Cellnet+Hunt to offer the broadest range of proven advanced metering and infrastructure communications systems to electric, gas and water utilities.
