NRG Stadium in Houston, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, has announced a multifaceted plan to improve energy sustainability at the venue. The plan, created by stadium naming-rights sponsor NRG Energy, involves three key components:

  • The installation of 700 solar panels in four NRG Haven Solar Canopies, providing 221 kW of energy generation for the stadium
  • The addition of six electric-vehicle charging stations to the NRG eVgo charging lot
  • Retrofitting the lighting system with 456 new high-efficiency LED field lights, which will make NRG Stadium the first professional football venue in the United States to use LED lighting on the field

NRG Energy and the Texans plan to complete the installation by the end of 2015.Read the full article here.Related Articles:St. Louis Rams Partner with Microgrid Solar on Clean Energy EffortsRutgers Powers Campus with Largest Solar Canopy System in NationWells Fargo Arena Embraces LED LightingOutdoor LED Installation to be used for ESPN’s Broadcasts of the U.S. OpenGreat Lakes Loons Receive Grant for LED Retrofits at Dow Diamond
