I think they should make new building codes around all professional sports leagues that the new stadiums should generate electricity. If the owners expect tax payers to build or renovate stadiums for them, the least they can do is give something back to the community besides entertainment. I believe all stadiums should be retrofitted with solar panels, helical wind turbines, and geothermal heating pumps. In addition, they should use CFL’s for the flood lights and LED’s for the hallway lights in the concourse. Further, I feel they must all have methane digester toilet facilities, ice cooling air conditioners, and rainwater collection systems. If the San Diego CHARGERS want to live up to their name, they should do that rather than CHARGE the municipal government higher tax dollars to build them a brand new stadium. All these stadiums could be mini power plants. Plus, they could use all that extra revenue to pay off the stadiums and bring more commerce to the franchise. What do you make of that idea?
That mat sounds phenomenal. Plus, I saw a special about two ladies that made some revolving doors that generate electricity. How about the revolving gates to the stadium doing the exact same thing. Maybe that college kid could invent some turf that generates electricity from the players running around on it. Or they could run along that mat on the sidelines during their warm-up routines.
