TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning announced details for ‘Go Green Sports Night’ for the team’s home opener against the Florida Panthers this evening at AMALIE Arena. The Bolts will participate in the Green Sports Alliance’s special night, which entails spreading the word about the efforts athletes, fans and organizations are making to lessen their footprint on our planet.
Tampa Bay Sports and Entertainment, LLC (TBSE), which manages and operates AMALIE Arena, has seen positive financial and environmental impacts since implementing Shift Energy’s Energy Optimization Software (EOS). EOS integrated easily with existing infrastructure inside the arena and their event management software (eventbookings.com), allowing TBSE to simplify and enhance day-to-day operations while customizing the system to Tampa Bay’s unique exterior conditions.
TBSE is reporting an energy cost reduction of 14%, a consumption reduction of nearly 1,500,000 kWh, and demand (kW) cost reduction of 15% and 1,100 tons CO2 saved following the deployment of EOS. Across the spectrum, the EOS system outperformed payback expectations for the facility operators.
