Solar Energy Industries Association has released a study on solar energy adoption by sports centers around the U.S., and winners have been announced just ahead of Super Bowl Sunday. In fact, both teams playing in the big game, Kansas City and Philadelphia, are top solar adopters at their home stadiums, according to SEIA, although host site State Farm Stadium in Arizona does not have solar.
Overall, more than 40 professional teams have incorporated solar energy into their stadiums and training facilities, or purchased solar power via off-site or community solar programs. Last year, more than 40.6 million fans attended events at solar-powered stadiums.
SEIA found that the National Football League (NFL) leads in solar-powered stadiums, with 32% of stadiums powered by solar. Major League Baseball (MLB) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) are close behind with both at 30% of arenas and stadiums with solar, SEIA shared.
