Earlier today, NRG and the Redskins unveiled the brand new green energy initiatives and solar panels at FedExField.
Because we live in a fast-paced news world, you can now watch the entire NRG solar panel construction in 1 minute, 36 seconds:
Redskins owner, Daniel Snyder, also shared some facts with the media during his press conference:
- This is a 10-year deal with NRG, and through the solar panels and the NRG power sources, will provide 100 percent of the energy for FedExField.
- The panels create enough electricity to fuel 300 homes. By using them as a source of energy, the stadium is effectively giving back 300 homes worth of energy to the grid.
- There will be charging stations at the stadium (and many more are being planned) so that drivers of electric cars can charge their vehicles during the game.
