Newark, N.J.-based energy company Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG), the parent company of utility Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G), is partnering with the NFL Environmental Program to provide green power for Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be held in the New York-New Jersey metro region.

PSEG says that for every MWh of electricity used to power the event, it will purchase and retire one renewable energy credit (REC) on behalf of Super Bowl XLVIII. The company reports this comprises the electricity used at MetLife Stadium, the AFC and NFC team hotels, and Super Bowl Boulevard, a public event in Times Square.

According to PSEG, the REC purchase includes New Jersey solar renewable energy credits equal to a four-week output at PSE&G's 3 MW Kearny Solar Farm. The company adds that the remaining RECs have been purchased from Community Energy Inc., a certified Green-e Supplier, sourced from the Jersey-Atlantic City Wind Farm.

PSEG notes that the REC purchase will have no impact on New Jersey ratepayers.
