DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The University of Dayton Arena will be lighting up the courts with renewable energy thanks to a partnership with AES Ohio.

AES Ohio will purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) and apply them toward energy usage at UD Arena facilities for pre-game events, practices and First Four games, according to a release.

“AES is honored to help accelerate sustainability efforts this March by providing safe,
reliable and green options to power the First Four games for the second consecutive
year,” Brandi Davis-Handy, AES US Utilities Chief Customer Officer, said.

“For more than a decade we’ve partnered with local organizers to help make this week’s experience shine bright for attendees, and we are pleased to extend our efforts in a way that now advances sustainability efforts within our entire community.”
