Minnesota Sports & Entertainment Announces Participation In Earth Hour

The Minnesota Wild, Xcel Energy Center, Saint Paul RiverCentre, Roy Wilkins Auditorium and 317 On The Park are pleased to announce their participation in Earth Hour this Saturday, March 25.

From 8:30-9:30 p.m. on Saturday our campus will join hundreds of millions of homes and businesses worldwide, switching off non-essential lighting for one hour. The three exterior marquees will be turned off as well as the RiverCentre sign on the skyway. Saint Paul RiverCentre, Xcel Energy Center and Roy Wilkins Auditorium are now completely powered by renewable electricity. All events on our campus are 100% powered by Windsource renewable electricity.

“Our organization continually seeks opportunities that reduce the environmental impact of our operations and our participation in Earth Hour is a small way we can further that commitment,” said Jim Ibister, Senior Vice President of Facility Administration for Minnesota Sports & Entertainment.
