    Busch Stadium goes green

    Busch Stadium is now using solar power. 5 other teams use some sort of solar energy. Can you guess them?

    I know the Royals installed solar panels over the off-season. I'm not sure on the other 4.

    MLB

    The MLB Commissioner’s Office also distributed a publication, produced by NRDC and the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, entitled Solar Energy for Your Stadium or Arena: A Guide to Understanding Opportunities of On-Site Photovoltaic Solar Power Generation to all MLB teams. The publication encourages stadium and arena operators to install on-site solar technology at their facility and provides detailed information about the process. To date, five MLB teams have installed solar systems at their stadiums: the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park, the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field, the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, and the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

    Re: Busch Stadium goes green

    Kauffman Stadium just got them at the end of January so it wouldn't surprise me if they were installed after that was written.

    I'd have to check to be sure but I think they use solar energy to grow the grass and ivy at Wrigley.

    That must be why it is so lovely and brown at the beginning of every season (except maybe this year).
