NRG Stadium To Receive Solar Array, LED Lighting

NRG Stadium in Houston, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, has announced a multifaceted plan to improve energy sustainability at the venue. The plan, created by stadium naming-rights sponsor NRG Energy, involves three key components:

  • The installation of 700 solar panels in four NRG Haven Solar Canopies, providing 221 kW of energy generation for the stadium
  • The addition of six electric-vehicle charging stations to the NRG eVgo charging lot
  • Retrofitting the lighting system with 456 new high-efficiency LED field lights, which will make NRG Stadium the first professional football venue in the United States to use LED lighting on the field
