Largest Solar Installation in the NFL at FedExField

Accorging to NRG Energy, The 8,000 panel installation and the power it generates demonstrates the reality of renewable energy solutions and options available in the U.S. By using solar power technologies, the Redskins and NRG are keeping 1,780 metric tons of carbon out of the atmosphere – the equivalent of replacing 349 vehicles with gasoline engines with zero emission electric vehicles.

The NRG Energy solar installation at FedExField is capable of meeting the stadium’s power needs on non-game days and providing up to 20% of the needed electricity on game days which is the equivalent of providing 300 homes with energy for a full year.  

 In addition, the new design includes several other solar features as well as 10 electric vehicle charging stations.  The installation is designed to engage fans, educate the public and showcase the use of renewable energy.
