Greenerpalooza

GREENERPALOOZA is a celebration of New Hampshire’s energy efficiency efforts. Over 8,000 concertgoers will not only get to enjoy a concert from a multi-platinum artist, they will also be able to visit a special Eco-Village on Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook midway where vendors will be extolling the virtues of wind and solar power as well as other alternative energy sources. “Greenerpalooza has been great at opening people’s eyes to the potential of a greener, more sustainable future,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Communications & Legislative Director, Steve Boucher. “By using the unifying force of music, we are able to help citizens to become more energy efficient, learn about new technologies and share a positive environmental message with their neighbors.”

cokeBank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook prides itself on being environmental conscious. We began our mission simply working on educating our staff and audience about the importance of recycling within the venue and our administrative offices. We then became aware of what we were purchasing and did our best to research and find environmentally friendly products to purchase whenever possible. We now offer Bio-diesel to each tour that visits our venue and have a generator that will work off bio-diesel whenever the need arises!

In 2008 we decided to dedicate one show each year to help educate our audience and created an Eco-Village featuring environmentally friendly products and services from companies around the state of NH. Each show has been tied closely to artists that have the same passion for the environment and energy efficiency.

In 2009 the first Greenerpalooza Award was to a New Hampshire-based person, organization or initiative dedicated to energy efficiency. It recognizes the accomplishments of those who support and promote green efforts throughout the Granite State and who work tirelessly to ensure that New Hampshire maintains its position as a state which celebrates sustainability.

Greenerpalooza IV

With the tremendous success of Greenerpalooza III, Greenerpalooza IV will see the return of title sponsors, Citizens Bank, PSNH and New Hampshire Division of Economic Development's Business Resource Center. This event will continue to build on the presenting of the Greenerpalooza Award and "Granite Green Team" green awareness efforts. In year four of this tremendous event Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook has implemented a carbon offset program to help battle the huge impact large audiences can have on the environment traveling to and from concerts. Proceeds from the offset program will be used to help fund a solar project on the venue's pavilion.

Greenerpalooza III

Greenerpalooza III has brought new partners into the fold for this year’s offering. Citizens Bank, a lending institution that has demonstrated a commitment to the community through its Champions in Action initiative as well as other charitable endeavors, has signed on as a co-sponsor, believing that encouraging sustainability fits in well with their corporate mission. Greenerpalooza III took place during Sheryl Crow and Colbie Caillat.

New to the event this year is the addition of the “Granite Green Team,” a virtual “green army” of volunteers who will collect recyclables at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook concerts and distribute seed cards that contain earth friendly messages and can be planted after being read. A team of 4-6 representatives from Public Service of New Hampshire, the Division of Economic Development, Citizens Bank and social media partner Epiphanies, Inc. will each attend a show during the 2010 season and encourage concert goers to dispose of recyclables responsibly and to observe eco awareness in their daily living.

Greenerpalooza II

In 2009 over 3,000 Jackson Browne/Shawn Colvin concert goers at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook were given the opportunity to learn all about the free energy efficiency services offered in the Granite State.

The first Greenerpalooza Award was given that year to Richard Ober, Chair of the NH Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Energy Board (EESE). He was presented with the first ever Greenerpalooza Award for his dedication to renewable energy causes. A Greenerpalooza Award will be given out each year.

Coordinated by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development and Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook in partnership with sponsors Public Service of New Hampshire and Ocean Bank, Greenerpalooza II featured a midway filled with utility companies providing energy efficiency tips as well as New Hampshire businesses that have created energy efficient products.
