6. Miller Park: Milwaukee Brewers

Home to the Milwaukee Brewers since 2001, Miller Park is the only baseball stadium with a retractable roof to hold LEED certification for existing buildings. The stadium owes its designation in large part to energy-efficiency. The Brewers upgraded their HVAC systems, plumbing, electrical lighting, and power systems – including the systems that control the retractable roof – with an expected annual reduction in CO2 emissions of 1,153 metric tons (equivalent of taking 220 cars off the road annually). In addition, their new high-definition scoreboard uses 50% less energy than its predecessor.
