AES Ohio, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), announced today for the third consecutive year, the company will partner with the University of Dayton to ensure all practices and games for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball First Four® are powered by renewable energy.

Technology advances have made renewable energy more accessible for AES Ohio customers.

“The Dayton Region has the most passionate college basketball fans, AES Ohio is excited to provide safe, reliable and green energy to power the First Four games,” said Tom Raga, AES Ohio President. “Since 2012, we’ve partnered with local organizers to help make this week’s experience inviting for attendees, and we will continue to advance sustainability efforts throughout our community.”
