Green On The Gridiron

By ACORE CEO and President, Vice Admiral Dennis V. McGinn 

This past Sunday during halftime of the Redskins—Eagles game, I accepted the NRG Sustainable Futures Award, presented by Arun Banskota, President of eVgo, a NRG Energy company and co-chair of ACORE’s Transportation Initiative. It was an honor to receive the NRG Sustainable Futures Award on Military Appreciation Day in front of tens of thousands of Washington Redskins fans. I accepted the award with great humility, fully realizing that it symbolizes not just my work, but the collective hard work of our members and the ACORE staff day in and day out—helping move the industry forward.

The Canadian River Watershed in northeastern New Mexico, which provides irrigation water to Arch Hurley Conservancy District farmers, has seen no irrigation water in six out of the last 12 years.
