New York Mets Score Homerun in Sustainability

 

Adding solar panels to a stadium is a great step in improving sustainability but shouldn’t end there.  Thankfully, many of the country’s top sports teams are committed to staying the course when it comes to eliminating often criticized wasteful practices.  A recent article, “No Longer Green Monsters, Ballparks Take Steps to Protect Environment”, on North Jersey.com, explains how changes can be seen in ballparks across the country – changes that go far beyond what the public sees.

One shining stars of sustainable changes are the NY Mets.  The article explains their transformation:

“When the Mets play at Citi Field, they are surrounded by a stadium made from more than 12,000 tons of recycled structural steel. They catch fly balls beneath field lighting that uses about 50 percent less energy than did their old home at Shea Stadium. And the fans tramp over and around concrete made from more than 2 million pounds of coal ash and other byproducts from coal-fired power plants.”

The changes go deeper than just the stadium.  The stadium uses waterless toilets, recycles trash and turns cooking oil into biofuel.  Every step of the construction of the stadium had clean or green energy in mind, took sustainability into account and used less or the most sustainable materials possible.  This type of corporate sustainability is exactly what green proponents such as Dr. Tyra Oldham with LAND sds (http://www.landsds.com) cheer on enthusiastically.  Dr. Oldham helps her clients analyze current practices and find ways to make processes more green and sustainable.  With a passion for green consulting Dr. Oldham can help any business reach sustainability levels as impressive as the NY Mets.

It's great the stadiums are moving towards green energy. Particularly since they have the money to invest, it is important that they lead the way towards cleaner energy. However, it is an important move for everyone to consider. When I was researching the topic, I got an amazing lead on Greenlogic.com. They have great information on the costs and savings before and after tax incentives and credits and utility rebates. These tax breaks alone can make it easier for you to afford a system. They have great information on green energy new york that can help you come up with a real strategy. They'll help you see which is the best solution for you and help you navigate the switch. I knew the initial cost of my solar system and the expected lifetime savings. It made the decision quick and easy. You should take a look.

We should have a better understanding of the current market conditions for the lighting industry and why <p>Energy Efficient Lighting</p> is so important to cutting costs and saving energy.”
