DES MOINES, Iowa – (March 27, 2017) – The Iowa Energy will host a Go Green Night, sponsored by MidAmerican Energy, Thursday, March 30 at 7 p.m. at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.
During the game, Iowa Energy players will wear special green jerseys to illustrate the importance of energy efficiency, and MidAmerican Energy will distribute reusable grocery bags and kids’ drawstring bags. Fans can stop by the MidAmerican Energy table during the game for more information on energy efficiency and rebates.
MidAmerican Energy is helping the Iowa Energy “go green” by retiring renewable energy credits generated from its Pomeroy wind farm to offset 100 percent of the electricity used during the game. This represents a reduction of approximately 81 tons of carbon dioxide emissions – roughly equivalent to the emissions produced from more than 8,200 gallons of gasoline.
In addition to the green initiatives, all active Energy players’ jerseys will be available for silent auction during Thursday’s game. The auction will conclude after the third quarter with all proceeds going to MidAmerican Energy’s I CARE program. Fans do not need to be present to win.
I CARE donates funds to local agencies to assist customers who are unemployed, living on fixed or low incomes, or experiencing a family crisis in paying their utility bills or making their homes more energy efficient. I CARE funding comes from customer donations, with a 25 percent match by MidAmerican Energy for all funds raised. All donations go directly to the agency that oversees the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) in the area where the contribution originated.
Tickets to the Go Green Night are available by calling 515-564-8550, visiting www.IowaNBA.com, or by stopping by the arena box office.
