The PGA Tour Championship tournament said it swapped diesel with renewable fuels for all onsite generation to power the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Renewable fuels are often produced from a combination of previously used materials, such as combining waste and residues with renewable and vegetable oils.

PowerSecure, a Southern Company subsidiary, provided the renewable fuel.

“The deployment of renewable fuel at the PGA TOUR Championship represents a major milestone for PowerSecure and the energy users and producers we serve,” said PowerSecure CEO Chris Cummiskey.
