San Diego Padres’ Petco Park is currently in the process of installing a massive Sunpower 336,520-watt solar power system to its upper deck roof and canopy. This solar project will be larger than all the MLB’s seven other solar projects, combined. Installed by Miramar-based company Sullivan Solar Power, Padres management state the project will save the organization more than $4,117,000 in utility bills over the next 25 years.
“This solar project reaffirms San Diego as the leader in solar and the city’s commitment to 100 percent clean energy,” Faulconer said at the Jan. 17 press conference announcing the solar project. “We are leading by example for the country to see that solar power is the future, today. We are determined to be a leader in creating a clean energy future.”
