Chiefs Add Solar Panels to Arrowhead Stadium

September 4, 2014



The Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Power and Light announced a partnership which led to the installation of 308 solar panels on Arrowhead Stadium at the Truman Sports Complex.



The solar panels were installed in three arrays. One was installed on the roof of the stadium, one on the University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex and one on the grounds by the practice facility. These arrays generate about 29,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, which is enough to power eight homes for an entire year.



The president of the Chiefs, Mark Donovan, said the solar panels are a part of a larger effort called the “Extra Yard for the Environment.” The program will include recycling, renewable energy, composting and efficiency efforts.



“The end goal is to be better and more efficient at everything we’re doing,” Donovan said. “We’re trying to be better on the field, better with marketing and things like that. But this gives us a chance to be more efficient, more cost effective and utilize our brand to make more people aware of the opportunities they have at their home or business to help the environment.



Kansas City Power & Light will continue to work with the Chiefs to find innovative ways to reduce their energy consumption. In return, the Chiefs allowed their brand to be used as a high-profile example of KCP&L efficiency programs. The Chiefs plan to make appearances at educational events and provide fans with information on how they can apply renewable energy efforts at home or at work.



“A lot of folks at KCP&L and the Chiefs worked very hard to make this happen,” said Terry Bassham, the CEO of KCP&L. “We’re very proud of this partnership and the results so far.”
