Eagles adding wind turbines, solar panels

The Philadelphia Eagles are going even greener.

The team plans to add wind turbines, solar panels and a

co-generation plant at Lincoln Financial Field over the next year.

Team officials say the combination of energy sources will make the

stadium self-sufficient and even allow the Eagles to sell some of

its power back to the electric grid.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie called the plan a ”vital step

towards energy independence.”

Under the plan, 80 spiral-shaped wind turbines will be mounted

on the stadium’s roof and 2,500 solar panels attached to the

stadium’s facade. The co-generation plant would be powered by

biodiesel and natural gas.

The project is expected to be finished by September.
