In a stunning move for an already NFL-leading green sports team, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they will be converting Lincoln Financial Field into a completely off-grid professional stadium; the first of its kind in the sporting world

A combination of wind turbines, solar (2,500 panels), and a 7.6 MW co-generation biodiesel/natural gas plant will be installed by new partner Solar Blue. The energy to be generated is comparable to the annual electicity usage of over 26,000 homes. In the off-season, the organization expects to send over 4MW of energy back into the grid. 1 Billion MW of energy is expected to be created over the course of the partnership with Solar Blue. From the release,

Solar Blue, based in Florida, is going to invest close to $30 million over the next year to build, install, maintain and operate this new power system that will include approximately 80 spiral-shaped wind turbines, 2,500 solar panels and an onsite dual-fuel cogeneration plant. The power system is targeted to be ready to go for September, 2011. Solar Blue anticipates employing 200 local residents during the one-year design & installation period. Fifty of these jobs will be permanent operational positions. Additionally, Solar Blue will create 600 indirect regional jobs to employ contractors, vendors and suppliers, as needed.

This is a developing story, so more as we get it.
