The Philadelphia Eagle green energy project is to be developed by Florida-based company SolarBlue, which is a leader in innovative energy conservation methods. The renewable energy system is expected to generate an impressive 4MW of energy, most of which will be fed back into the national grid. As a result, the system will not only save the Eagles money on their energy bills (approximately $60 million over the next 20 years), but it will also eventually generate revenue.
The Philadelphia Eagles are proud to take this vital step towards energy independence from fossil fuels,” Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said. “It underscores our strong belief that environmentally sensitive policies are consistent with sound business practices.” The entire stadium is expected to be fully energy independent by September 2011.
