NRG Energy, the Santa Clara Stadium Authority and the San Francisco 49ers have entered into an agreement to bring solar energy to the new Santa Clara Stadium. NRG will help the new facility become the first professional football stadium to open with LEED certification, according to the companies.

NRG plans to install a number of state-of-the-art solar elements, including three solar array-covered bridges, a solar canopy above the green roof on the suite tower portion of the stadium and solar panels over the 49ers' training center.

The arrays will have a total peak capacity of about 400 kW and will provide enough power over the course of a year to offset the power consumed at the stadium during 49ers home games.
