Panasonic installs solar panels for the Seattle Mariners home field
In March 2012, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company (currently, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America as of April 1) installed a solar panel system comprising 168 HIT Double solar panels (equivalent to 32.76 kW) at Safeco Field, the Seattle Mariners’ home field. HIT Double solar panels are capable of generating electricity from both the top and bottom sides of the panel, providing greater power than the conventional model. The panels are suitable for Seattle’s relative lack of annual sunshine days while providing 40,000 kW of power per year. The baseball audience can see the total amount of power generated by the solar power system on the monitor display installed in the stadium. This project is a part of Mariners’ commitment to sustainability.
