The San Francisco Giants have teamed with Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) to install a solar system at AT&T Park. The park will soon be the first ballpark in Major League Baseball to install a solar system. The system will provide 120 kW of green energy to PG&E customers in San Francisco. The amount of energy is 20 kW more than the energy needed to power the Giants’ new Diamond Vision scoreboard for the baseball season.
PG&E will install up to 590 Sharp solar panels in three areas of AT&T Park — on the Port Walk along McCovey Cove, on a newly erected canopy over the Willie Mays pedestrian ramp and on the roof of the Giants Building. PG&E will connect the 120 kW of power generated from the solar panels into the San Francisco power grid as part of an attempt to meet the city’s goal to become “the greenest city in the nation.”
