The Washington Redskins plans to install solar panels this September at FedExField in Landover Maryland.

The solar array will supply part of the stadium's electricity needs on game days, but on non-game days, it will supply all of it's energy needs.

NRG Energy will install the 8,000 panels as well as a covered parking area that the team says will protect fans from inclement weather and make for better tailgating.

This solar installation is the latest in a growing number of major projects. Catholic, Georgetown, and American Universities all have or are installing major panel systems, so is Perdue's Salsbury corporate headquarters and a prison complex near Hagerstown.
