The most iconic American event, the Super Bowl, is huge and expensive like everything else distinctly American. If we think about how much electricity the Super Bowl uses, we have to look at three things: TVs used to watch the game (37.5 GWh or roughly $4,125,000 worth of electricity), lighting and possibly climate control in the stadium (50 MWh or $5,000 worth of electricity), and fuel used in traveling to the game (280 MWh or $16 million worth of electricity.)

Overall, the Super Bowl costs over $20 million in energy every year.
