World's Largest Solar Stadium By Kyocera

"The world's largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system went into operation this week on the STADE DE SUISSE Wankdorf Bern. After the additional installation of 2,808 solar modules, the stadium now has 7,930 modules from the Japanese technology company Kyocera, providing an overall output of 1,346.774 kWp. The expanded system will produce 1,134,045 kWh per year and save on the emission of 630 tons of CO2 annually.

With this expansion, the stadium of the Swiss first league soccer club BSC Young Boys Bern has the world’s largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system on its roof."

When this comes to the USA, if there's ever a team owner or City with with vision like the Swiss, we can imagine the crowd singing 'Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack, please don't let dirty coal lights come back.'
