State-of-the-art solar canopy at Patriot Place
At the home of the New England Patriots, a new solar canopy and rooftop panels nearly triple the solar power output at Patriot Place, an outdoor shopping and dining center next to Gillette Stadium.
The new system consists of both standard and translucent solar panels that cover many of Patriot Place's outdoor walkways, providing power and protecting guests from the elements. About 3,000 more panels was installed on an adjacent store's roof.
Patriot Place is dedicated to lowering energy costs and sustainable initiatives. The facility features a reflective roof, low-VOC paints and sealants, energy-efficient lights and Energy Star qualified equipment. This is just one of many projects that reflects NRG's pro football initiative.
