  • The authority said the project would meet the requirements of LEED and the Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines, both of which evaluate buildings on the basis of energy and water usage, air quality and other environmental factors.
  • Met with wildlife professionals to make a safe crash-free zone for birds
  • Promised to sweep and water down site daily

  • On game days uses more energy than Liberia
  • 25,000 foot scoreboard
  • Takes 10 megawatts to power stadium

English Premier League
  • According to one study of the English Premier League, the average soccer match in England has a carbon footprint of 5,160 metric tons, equivalent to the energy consumption of half a million gallons of gas or enough to power 772 American homes each year.

  • Since January, 11,000 solar panels and 14 wind turbines have been generating power at Lincoln Financial Field
  • Signs in the men's rooms at Lincoln Financial: "Recycle your beer here and your plastics outside." Among other signs at the stadium: "The only water we waste is sweat.“
  • "I work with the St. Louis Cardinals (baseball) at Busch Stadium. They reduced their energy use in the last three years by 24%. … That gets noticed. … The Seattle Mariners (baseball) save over a $1 million a year in reducing their energy costs and their waste costs. That's certainly a good role model for other businesses to emulate.“ Allen Hershkowitz

Marlins Park

This ball park has an 8,000-ton retractable roof that requires a lot of energy to operate, but regenerative drive systems reduce power consumption so that it costs less than $10 in electricity to open or close.

There are 52 waterless urinals which means Marlins Park uses 52% less water than most stadiums.

The majority of the lighting comes from the windows and glass surrounding the stadium.

  • Highly reflective cool roof materials over the concession/toilet area minimize heat gains and reduce air conditioning use
  • Energy-efficient lighting uses 20% less energy than typical field lighting.
  • Water-efficient plumbing uses 30% less water than comparable facilities this helps saving 3.6 millions gallons of water each year

Target Field
  • Low-flow urinals, dual-flush toilets, and aerated faucets use 30% less potable water than conventional fixtures and save about 4 million gallons of water annually
  • Rain recycle system allows the Twins staff to use rainwater to wash the seating area; per game, the system saves them 14,000 to 21,000 gallons of water; 86 gallons of gasoline; and 57 man-hours of labor.
  • Office staff turn off lights and computers, and engage in other energy-saving behaviors, to help save nearly 5% on office energy use
metlife stadium
Metlife Stadium
  • Water efficient plumbing which lowers the annual water demand by 25% compared to most stadiums
  • An automated lighting control system which helps minimize energy consumption
  • Energy efficient Low E coating of windows which reduces heat gain by 24% compared to Giants Stadium
