LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD: NFL PHILIDELPHIA EAGLES

PHILIDELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, USA · NOVEMBER 2012 · 14 UGE-4KS

 

Lincoln Financial Field, the home of the Philadelphia Eagles, has taken dramatic steps to green the stadium, including measures to produce all of their energy on-site. The solar and wind array offsets 100% of all energy use on non-game days, producing and feeding energy back into the grid. Located at opposing ends of the field, the 14 turbines were strategically placed to provide "a visual representation of our sustainable efforts," said Eagles president Don Smolenski. The system was also designed so that it won't interfere with the fan experience. The result is a project that will save millions in energy costs each year- a touchdown for renewable energy.

It’s one of those things where everybody wins.
— Eagles president Don Smolenski
