Sharp Provides Solar Panels at All-Star Game
When the American and National League teams square off in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game in San Francisco, AT&T Park will have a notable addition: 590 solar panels, courtesy of Sharp Electronics Corp. The panels, the first ever installed in a major league stadium continue both Sharp’s commitment to solar power, and its partnership with Major League Baseball.
“California is the third-largest solar market in the world and has long been a leader in the adoption of solar energy in the U.S,” Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group vice president Ron Kenedi said in a statement announcing the panels’ arrival. “The Giants have taken a pioneering step in promoting solar electricity to California residents by making it an integral part of the baseball experience.”
The new panels will generate 120kW of clean electricity, Sharp said, to be fed back into Pacific Gas & Electric’s electricity grid.
