FedExField Solar Bowl
NRG and the Washington Redskins bring The Solar Bowl to FedExField
NRG Energy has teamed up with the Washington Redskins to put more than 8,000 solar panels at FedExField — making it the largest solar power installation in the metropolitan D.C. area. This entire innovative power system was implemented in three short months.
The electricity produced by the power system at FedExField each year is enough to meet the power needs of about 300 homes in the metro D.C. area.*
By using solar power, the Redskins and NRG are keeping 1,780 metric tons of carbon out of the atmosphere, the equivalent of replacing 349 vehicles with gasoline engines with zero-emission electric vehicles.**
Making solar work for everyone is just another way NRG is changing the way people think about, and use energy.
