Mercury, APS to Host Green Night 8/5

Posted: August 3, 2014

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Mercury and Arizona Public Service (APS) will host their annual “Green Night” on Tuesday, August 5 when the team takes on the Atlanta Dream at US Airways Center. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.

US Airways Center will be powered by renewable energy, like solar, from APS. The Mercury purchased 45,000 kilowatt-hours of green energy, which is enough to power the entire game.

Throughout the game, the Mercury and APS will communicate “green tips” featuring the APS Refrigerator Recycling Program in-arena. Fans in attendance will have the chance to receive a free EcoSmart® shirt during the game, brought to you by APS. The EcoSmart® shirts are made of five percent polyester created from recycled plastic bottles.

In addition, the team will wear green shooting shirts during their pre-game warm-up in support of “Green Night.”

Limited tickets are still available for the Mercury matchup against the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday, August 5 at US Airways Center. Fans can visit to purchase tickets.
