Wellfleet helps Green Monster to go Green

WELLFLEET — The Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park, home of the Green Monster, invested in another kind of green on Patriots Day, buying renewable energy credits from solar installations at two Wellfleet buildings as part of an effort to reduce the baseball team’s carbon footprint.

The team bought the credits to offset all carbon emissions from Monday’s game, in which the Red Sox defeated the Tampa Bay Rays, according to a statement from the team. The renewable energy credits were purchased from the Wellfleet Fire Department’s fire station and Wellfleet Public Library, a total of 35 megawatt-hours, according to team spokeswoman Zineb Curran.  To learn more visit http://wellfleetenergycommittee.org/posts/
