PHILADELPHIA EAGLES & PDC MACHINES OFFICIALLY UNVEIL NEW HYDROGEN REFUELING STATION WITH CEREMONIAL RIBBON CUTTING
The Eagles are the first professional sports team in North America to install and utilize a hydrogen refueling station to power its passenger vehicles
The Philadelphia Eagles are taking their sustainability efforts to the next level with the installation of a PDC Machines hydrogen refueling station at Lincoln Financial Field. The unit produces green hydrogen energy by taking electricity from the stadium’s 10,456 solar panels and adding water. The only emission from hydrogen energy is water vapor, which is a clean fuel compared to gasoline and diesel. The Eagles are the first professional sports team in North America to have a hydrogen refueling station installed at its stadium.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Eagles, PDC Machines, City of Philadelphia, and State of Pennsylvania will be held in Lincoln Financial Field’s Stadium Control Lot on Friday, September 22, at 10 a.m. Following remarks and the ribbon cutting, the unit will fuel its first vehicle – the team’s hydrogen-powered Hyundai Nexo.
The Eagles announced a multi-year sustainability partnership with PDC Machines in February 2020.
