CLEVELAND -- Indians are making news with all the power they've added during the off-season. But the other story is how much power they're making.

Almost a year ago, the Indians teamed up with Cleveland State University and added a turbine to the southeast corner of the ballpark.

Brad Mohr is the guy in charge of all the power.

He says the turbine turns out enough electricity to light four homes for a year or about 40,000 kilowatt hours per year. The ballpark uses over 19 million a year. But this is only the beginning.

The Indians are looking at other ways to make electricity and save money. And because it's working here, you could soon see turbines at other ballparks across the country.

Major League Baseball just honored Brad and his team with the Green Glove Award, as the team leading the way with helping to save the environment.
