The San Francisco Giants and Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) have formed a joint partnership to install a solar system at AT&T Park. The project represents the first ballpark in Major League Baseball to install a solar system.
‘Through this partnership, we hope to raise awareness about the importance of using energy wisely and efficiently, and about the need to develop and utilize renewable energy sources,’ says Peter Magowan, the Giants' president and managing general partner.
PG&E will install up to 590 Sharp solar panels in three areas of AT&T Park and will connect the power generated from the system into San Francisco's power grid, the company says. The panels will be located on the Port Walk along McCovey Cove, on a newly erected canopy over the Willie Mays pedestrian ramp and on the roof of the Giants Building.
