Washington Redskins “Solar Bowl”. Cool!

A couple of us were watching the Colts vs Redskins NFL pre-season game and they made mention of FedExField having added a solar panels to power its stadium. Thought it was worth mentioning. They claim it can provide 20% of the power needed during game day and provide 100% of the power the stadium needs on non-game days.

The use of the solar power system the stadium keeps 1,780 metric tons of carbon out of the atmosphere which is equivalent of replacing 349 gas powered vehichles with zero emission electric vehicles.

Here’s a time lapse of the solar power system being installed by NRG Energy.
