Washington Redskins are going solar
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - The Washington Redskins are going solar.
The team announced Wednesday that solar power panels will be in place at FedExField and in the Landover stadium's parking lot this September. The system will provide a portion of the stadium's electricity on game days and all of its electricity on non-game days.
NRG Energy will install 8,000 panels that will provide clean energy as well as covered parking that the team says will protect fans from inclement weather and enhance tailgating.
The solar power installation is the latest in a growing number planned or already built across the region, including buildings at Catholic University, Perdue's Salisbury corporate headquarters and a prison complex near Hagerstown,
