HOUSTON, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — ENGIE Resources, a leader in U.S. retail energy, announced that it has renewed its multi-year contract to supply power to Citizens Bank Park, part of the Philadelphia Sports Complex and home of baseball’s Philadelphia Phillies. Additionally, ENGIE Resources has a multi-year marketing agreement with the Phillies, which includes signage, sponsorship, and events.
The retail power provider has served the Phillies through a multi-year contract since 2011. Team officials pointed to a number of benefits that have reinforced the relationship between the team, the ballpark, and ENGIE Resources.
“Retail power is a competitive business. The Phillies looked for a partner who consistently gives us an edge and exceeds our expectations,” said David Buck, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Advertising Sales, Philadelphia Phillies. “ENGIE Resources has done that. Whether the issue is price, product, transparency, or service, they have taken the time to understand our business and our consumption patterns, and have worked with us at every turn to shape strategies that best fit our objectives.”
JD Burrows, Vice President of Marketing for ENGIE Resources, added, “Our responsibility is to serve the team and provide a competitive edge. We want to be sure the Phillies get the power and service they need at a clear, honest price that guarantees no hidden fees or ‘sticker shock.’ I believe our ability to do that has helped to cement our relationship, and we’re proud and grateful for the opportunity to continue working with one of the greatest franchises in professional sports.”
The Phillies are among the top purchasers of green power in Philadelphia. They were the first Major League Baseball team to join the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership Program, which motivates organizations across the world to minimize their environmental impact through procurement programs that support renewable energy sources.
About the Phillies Red Goes Green Program
In April 2008, the Philadelphia Phillies launched the Red Goes Green Program at Citizens Bank Park in an effort to lead the way in the clean energy movement at professional sports venues. In launching the initiative, the Phillies became the first Major League Baseball team to join the EPA’s Green Power Partnership Program, a voluntary program that encourages organizations to buy green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with purchased electricity use. Since that time, the Phillies have made tremendous efforts toward creating a cleaner environment. For more information on these many initiatives, please visit phillies.mlb.com/phi/community/rgg.
