A typical NFL stadium uses enough electricity in a year to power about 1,000 average U.S. homes, leaving some football teams with annual power bills of more than a million dollars.
Energy Now correspondent Tyler Suiters visits two NFL franchises to learn how some teams are investing in renewable energy to save money and help the environment, and he meets players who are taking some green initiatives of their own.
Among the teams visited? The Washington Redskins of course. Suiters interviews Redskins owner Dan Snyder about the NRG Energy solar installment at FedExField, set to generate about 20% of stadium power on game days and all of it on non game days.
Other video highlights include Suiters seeing who is the greenest among Redskins players and Lorenzo Alexander driving the correspondent around in his environmentally-friendly Prius!
