Gillette Stadium in Foxborough will “go green” for the rest of the New England Patriots’ home games this football season, the team management announced.
Kraft Sports + Entertainment said in an Oct. 25 statement that the stadium will be powered with renewable energy from Enel Green Power North America, which operates electrical generating plants powered by water, wind, geothermal, and solar energy.
Enel X, a subsidiary of the energy company, also will install 50 electric vehicle “smart” charging stations throughout Patriot Place, the open-air shopping center owned by the Kraft Group and built around Gillette Stadium.
The energy company also will advise the Kraft Group on ways to track, analyze, and reduce energy use at the stadium, the statement said.
“We look forward to continuing to work together with Enel in an effort to become the most sustainable stadium in the US,” said Murray Kohl, the Kraft Group’s vice president of sales.
