              For the first time, Connect Sports acquired energy offsets
to go energy neutral for our 2018 event in August!


In partnership with Salt Palace Convention Center and its rooftop solar array, Connect acquired 159 Solar Renewable Energy Credits through the center's renewable energy program. Salt Palace is awarded these energy offsets because it draws solar/renewable energy to power its facility. Twenty percent of the facility's annual power demand is supplied by its rooftop solar array. We are so grateful for their partnership in helping us create the most sustainable event we can. As an added bonus, the facility uses the funding generated for this program to further enhance the sustainability elements of its operation. View certificate.
