Recently released research has concluded that record levels of energy saving will occur during Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday. Already the most popular sporting event of the year and a quasi-national holiday, the Super Bowl also results in large-scale energy savings for the duration of the event.

This is mainly due to a significant variable in facilitating energy savings – time spent in large groups rather than alone in your home. The communal tradition of watching the Super Bowl in large groups also reduces electricity use and home power usage, according to an Outlier survey.

So this Sunday, when millions tune in to watch the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks battle for a championship, households across the country will be participating in mass energy savings, probably without even knowing it.
