In 2015, Super Bowl XLIX was the first to be played under energy-efficient LED lights. In 2016, Super Bowl 50 will be played at San Francisco’s Levi’s Stadium, a modern marvel with LEED Gold Certification, and the ability to generate enough renewable energy for an entire season of home games. In 2017, the game heads to NRG Stadium, with an EV parking lot, 600-plus solar panels, and energy-efficient LED lights. Pro football’s stadiums are becoming more sustainable, and exposing millions of fans to the ease and beauty of sustainable living. This panel examines the decision and process of going green, and determines the impact these decisions have on consumers’ renewable home energy choices.
