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:  

  • Waste Diversion - The stadium diverts waste from the landfill and currently repurposes, reuses, or donates 20 material streams. 
  • Food Scrap Collection - On average, 12,000 pounds of kitchen prep cuttings and end-of-event food scraps are collected per large stadium event. 
  • Cigarette Waste Collection - Allegiant Stadium is the first stadium in the U.S. to divert cigarette waste from the landfill and convert that waste into energy. More than 69,000 Watts of Energy have been created from this program. 
  • Raiders Field Grass Clippings - The stadium diverts grass clippings to the onsite biomass machine. To date, 160,800 pounds of grass clippings have been composed or diverted.
