Eagles plan to make field eco-friendly

on Wednesday,November 24,2010 19:11


Architects have not only been presented with the difficult task of developing new sustainable designs, but structures that will keep pace with global warming. Recently, the National Football League (NFL) made headlines when the Philadelphia Eagles announced that they plan to go green.

Lincoln Financial Field will officially undergo changes to make it an environmentally friendly stadium, according to Discovery. By September 2011, nearly 2,500 solar panels and 80 wind turbines will be installed to provide energy for the venue. A co-generation plant, run by bio-diesel fuel and natural gas, will also aid operations at the stadium.

"The Philadelphia Eagles are proud to take this vital step towards energy independence from fossil fuels," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie told the news source. "It underscores our strong belief that environmentally sensitive policies are consistent with sound business practices."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he commends the Eagles for their efforts and hopes that more franchises follow in their footsteps sooner than later.

Architect jobs are projected to grow by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. More sustainable structures, similar to Lincoln Financial Field, may help reduce the effects of global warming in the future.
