Solar in Professional Sports Growing Swiftly

More than 46 megawatts of solar capacity — enough to power 8,000 homes — has been installed at professional sports facilities in the United States, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. Nearly one-half of that total has been installed in just the last three years, another indication of solar energy’s growth. The organization maintains a database of professional sports facilities across the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, NASCAR and IndyCar. To date, 32 percent of NFL stadiums have solar, the highest of any of the professional sports leagues. The NBA and MLB are tied for second at 30 percent of facilities with solar. The sports facility with the most solar is the Golden 1 Center, home of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, with an installed capacity of 11,000 kilowatts (kW).
