As the Kings’ season continues to melt away, they hook up with a solar energy company


The Kings are finding every which way to lose these days — if it’s not being on the wrong end of a 1-0 shutout, then it’s blowing a 3-0 lead to rival Phoenix.

As their playoff chances appear to be melting away by the day, why not bring in a Canadian-based solar energy company that can naturally speed up the process?

Canadian Solar Inc. is “a perfect fit … to become a first-time sponsor of the Los Angeles Kings,” said the company’s chairman and CEO, Dr. Shawn Qu, in a press release. “The Los Angeles Kings have already made exemplary efforts in sustainability. This latest partnership highlights our commonality and provides a meaningful platform for a strong brand and renewable energy message.”

Renewable goal scoring might seem to be a more pressing need as the Kings seek sustainability in the Western Conference playoff race.

Apparently, a solar-powered light bulb went off in the heads of the Kings’ parent company, AEG, to make this partnership happen.

“At AEG, we pride ourselves on being a sustainable organization. Partnering with a preeminent sustainable company like Canadian Solar is a no-brainer,” said Bill Pedigo, Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships for the Kings.
