San Diego Wave FC Becomes Local Sustainability Champion with Commitment to 100% Clean Energy
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - At an on-field ceremony during the last regular season match of San Diego Wave Fútbol Club's historic inaugural season on Friday, the team and San Diego Community Power will announce that they have teamed up to use 100% clean, renewable energy at their front office space.
As part of their commitment to a more equitable and sustainable future for all San Diegans, Wave FC has become San Diego Community Power's latest Power100 Champion, joining the ranks of the San Diego Padres, Sharp HealthCare, Illumina and the San Diego International Airport.
"This pledge is our commitment to the city of San Diego and to the future of all San Diegans," Wave FC President Jill Ellis said. "Sustainability is a responsibility that we embrace at Wave FC, and we are incredibly proud to partner with San Diego Community Power to fuel our front office with renewable energy."
After shattering the National Women's Soccer League attendance record with their first match at Snapdragon Stadium on Sept. 17, Wave FC made history again last week by becoming the first expansion team to make the playoffs during their first year in the league.
By opting up to Power100, the Wave FC's eligible accounts in San Diego Community Power's service territory will be powered by 100% renewable, carbon-free energy - making them the first NWSL team to publicly make such a commitment.
"San Diego Community Power and San Diego Wave FC have a shared vision of making our region stronger by investing in our communities, promoting diversity and inclusion, and creating a more equitable world for the next generation," said San Diego Community Power Chief Executive Officer Karin Burns. "As the most successful expansion team in league history, it's no surprise that San Diego Wave FC continues to grow its reputation as trailblazers by becoming champions for clean energy and a brighter future for San Diego."
San Diego Community Power is a community choice energy program that gives customers an option to run their businesses and homes on significantly higher levels of renewable power at competitive rates. Over the last two years, San Diego Community Power began providing service to more than 770,000 municipal, business and residential power customers in the cities of San Diego, Chula Vista, Encinitas, La Mesa and Imperial Beach. San Diego Community Power will be expanding its service to National City and the unincorporated areas of the County in spring 2023.
As a locally-controlled, not-for-profit, San Diego Community Power reinvests excess revenue back into the areas it serves. Learn more at www.sdcommunitypower.org.
