The Philadelphia Eagles and PPL Corporation announce effects of solar panels

November 06, 2007: 02:00 PM EST

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Philadelphia Eagles and PPL Corporation have partnered to announce innovative solar energy usage at the NovaCare Complex. PPL Renewable Energy, a subsidiary of PPL Corporation of Allentown, Pa., designed and constructed an innovative solar system that converts energy from sunlight into electricity. The solar panels, which track the sun throughout the day, were installed at the team's training and practice complex in August 2007 and are the first of their kind in Pennsylvania.

The energy-saving panels reflect the Eagles' ongoing GO GREEN effort. The Eagles organization has begun to feel the positive and lasting effects of this solar project. The solar panels are expected to produce 16,100 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, eliminating 26,400 pounds of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) emissions annually. The amount of carbon emissions saved equates to planting 67 trees each year.
