Solar Charging Super Bowl 50

The one team that I care about playing in  Super Bowl 50 NFL Championship game is team Solar!  Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco has 375 kW of solar panels that generate enough electricity each year to power all of the 49ers home games.   Of course, I wouldn’t be a good Patriots fan if I didn’t point out that Gillette Stadium is home to 1,000 kW of solar panels.

Here are some additional green things happening at the Super Bowl this year at Levi’s Stadium:superbowl_50_levi_infographic

  • 85% of water used is reclaimed
  • all wood used in owners’ suites is reclaimed from local dirigible airship hangar
  • includes a 27,000 sqft “green roof” including 16 drought tolerant plant species.
