*** GEO's Recipient of the Pioneer of the Year 2007 Award 
Cleveland Indians, first American League Team with Stadium Solar Array with permanent educational kiosk featured at SOLAR 2007 and Tribe home games. In 2007, The Cleveland Indians were proud to announce the installation of a new solar electric system at Progressive Field , first American League ballpark to go solar.  The 8.4 kW Solar Pavilion at Progressive Field and permanent educational kiosk featured at SOLAR 2007 and all future Cleveland Indians' home games provides clean, renewable electricity and introduces solar energy concepts to millions ion Northeast Ohio.  The Cleveland Indians are committed to exploring opportunities to help preserve the environment through the use of advanced energy", said Jim Folk, Indians Vice President of Ballpark Operations during its unveiling on June 29, 2007 as part of 'Solar Day at the Ballpark.' Incorporating an educational kiosk into the design was an important aspect of the Solar Pavilion as well.  Currently, data monitoring software displays the output of the Solar Pavilion with a flash program on an LCD monitor, and the information is viewable online on the GEO website homepage (Top Right Corner).  Partnerships and projects with organizations like the Cleveland Indians help in educating millions of people about renewable energy, which will be critical to increase the adoption of these technologies.
