The Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium has reached 100 percent renewable energy, making it the first NFL stadium to be powered exclusively by renewable energy. The Raiders’ game against the Green Bay Packers was the first time an NFL game to be fully operated by renewable power.
Allegiant Stadium first obtained LEED gold certification in July.
The stadium has strived to conserve energy usage for all events that are held. Operating at 100 percent renewable energy will minimize Allegiant Stadium’s environmental footprint and reduce energy costs. The renewable power supplied to the stadium is produced within Nevada and serves other NV Energy customers, a press release reveals. The energy solution guarantees cost stability for years to come.
Renewable energy isn’t the only sustainable commitment the stadium has taken. Other initiatives include:
