Suns To Go Green This Friday, Powered By APS

Posted: April 4, 2013

The Phoenix Suns will host an eco-friendly matchup powered by APS when they take on the Golden State Warriors on Friday, April 5 at US Airways Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.

As part of APS Green Night at US Airways Center, the arena will be powered by green renewable energy from APS during the game.

Throughout the night, APS will promote the company’s new campaign, paperless billing. Each year, APS uses approximately 611,000 pounds of paper to print bills for those customers still receiving a paper bill. If all customers signed up for paperless billing, it would eliminate 489 pounds of toxic air pollutants, 517,662 pounds of solid waste and 4.3 million gallons of wastewater annually.

In addition to Friday’s Green Night, the Phoenix Suns and APS showcase their commitment to renewable energy throughout the entire season – thanks to the APS-owned SunsPowered Solar Structure, located on the 5th level of the US Airways Center parking garage. With 966 solar panels covering approximately 17,000 square feet and producing 378,000 kilowatt-hours each year, the system generates enough electricity to power 20 game days for the Suns – all while showcasing APS’s unwavering support for the Suns, the sun and the clean energy this abundant resource provides.

Check out the solar panels on the top floor of the garage as you support the Suns at US Airways Center on Friday night. Come early – the first 1,000 fans will receive a Suns/APS reusable tote bag at the start of the game. A limited number of tickets are still available. Purchase yours today at Suns.com or by calling 1-800-4NBA-TIX.
