Solar energy provide POWERHOME Solar will begin installing solar panels on the aptly named Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians, in the upcoming months.
The Indians continue to be among the industry leaders in taking a proactive approach to supporting various environmental initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint at the stadium. This new solar array will be located on the roof behind home plate and will help further reduce energy costs and expand the Indians’ sustainability initiatives.
“The Cleveland Indians organization is committed to helping preserve the environment by using advanced energy and green options,” said Jerry Crabb, Indians Senior Director of Ballpark Operations. “We understand the responsibility of being environmentally conscious within the walls of Progressive Field and beyond. Using sustainable technologies is not only good for the community, but good for baseball.”
POWERHOME Solar, headquartered in Mooresville, N.C., is one of the fastest growing American companies to specialize in solar energy and roofing services, and will help the Indians maximize energy efficiency, reduce energy costs, and further minimize their carbon footprint.
“Progressive Field is the first Major League Baseball (MLB) facility to utilize POWERHOME Solar to help meet sustainability goals,” said Jayson Waller, founder and CEO of POWERHOME Solar. “Large commercial sites like this help us educate consumers about the simplicity and benefits of renewable energy. We hope to encourage thousands of Indians fans to consider renewable energy and think more about the environment.”
POWERHOME Solar is working with NFL and MLB franchises, academic institutions and professional athletes to help build stronger, healthier communities across the U.S.
