Arsenal scores goal for environment with switch to renewables

Emirates Stadium

Arsenal Football Club has officially switched to 100 per cent renewably sourced electricity, supplied by Octopus Energy.

According to Arsenal.com, the club has saved 2.32 million kilos of CO2 per year from sourcing its power from Octopus Energy's solar farms and anaerobic digestion sites. That's the equivalent weight of a 183 double-decker buses (if that's how you measure carbon dioxide).

Arsenal's home ground, Emirates Stadium, also does its bit with a water recycling system and a programme to send food waste to an anaerobic digestion plant.

"Green energy is at a tipping point, the technology to create electricity from renewable sources is now so efficient, that we can offer 'green' energy to our customers which is cheaper than many 'non green' tariffs," says Octopus Energy CEO Greg Jackson.
