PhiladelphiaUnited States

The Philadelphia Eagles football stadium has embraced a number of sustainability practices in its overall operations, along with gaining a LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council.

As part of this, the stadium utilizes solar panel installations on several areas of its structure and throughout the north public parking area, which is lined with solar canopies. There are reportedly 11,108 solar panels used. Fourteen wind turbines also line the top of the stadium.

These technologies provide approximately 1/3 of the stadium’s energy, creating 4 MW per year. More can be read on Lincoln Financial Field’s energy practices and usage here:
