Construction milestone reached at Levi's Stadium

NRG Energy and the San Francisco 49ers have announced the completion of phase one of the solar installation at Levi’s Stadium. When it opens in August 2014, the state-of-the-art venue will become the first stadium that is home to an NFL team to have sustainability and LEED certification standards incorporated into its design and architecture.

The 49 solar frames are part of the stadium’s NRG Solar Terrace on the west side of the venue. The frames cover 9,574ft2 of the suite roof with a total of 544 SunPower E20 Series solar panels. Levi’s Stadium will also include three solar panel-covered NRG Energy Bridges, which will serve as the main entry and exit to the stadium.

“The vision for Levi’s Stadium has always been to create a venue that is an economically and environmentally sustainable showcase for innovation,” said San Francisco 49ers President Gideon Yu. “With phase one of the solar installation now complete, we are one step closer to making that vision a reality. As we continue to implement sustainable and environmentally conscious features throughout Levi’s Stadium, we will remain focused on pursuing creative avenues to make our region stronger in a variety of ways.”

In total, the solar arrays at Levi’s Stadium should have a combined peak capacity of about 375 kW. The amount of solar energy generated annually is expected to be enough to offset the power consumed at the stadium during 49ers regular season home games.
