Lincoln Financial Field Goes Solar

the lincLincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, is now also the home of a major solar power system.

The project has resulted in more than 11,000 panels positioned on top of the roof, as well as over some parking spots and along the side of the building facing I-95.

On a sunny day the system can power out over 21,000 kilowatt hours, which is almost enough to power two average homes for a year.

The $30 million project also includes 14 wind turbines, which serve as a visual representation of the team’s commitment to sustainability.

The Eagles have become somewhat of a gold standard in terms of creating a green stadium, recycling an astounding majority of waste. Plus, the Linc has converted fryer oil from concession stands to biodiesel that can be used in equipment.

The project is the largest solar-power system in the NFL and in the Philadelphia area.
