NRG Energy’s Stadium Sustainability Efforts in Professional Football

by Lori on November 21, 2014

When you think of a professional football team do you think of how that football team is helping the environment? How they are taking energy saving to the new level?

I doubt it. Most Americans are more concerned with stats of the team then how they are making their mark on the world.

NRG Park is the premier sports, convention, tradeshow/consumer show and entertainment complex located in Harris County, specifically Houston’s South Main corridor district. Three major facilities—NRG Stadium, NRG Center™ and NRG Arena™—encompass 350 acres and provide 26,000 parking spaces. NRG Park is home to the NFL’s Houston Texans, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Super Bowl® XXXVIII & LI, WrestleMania® X-Seven & 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania®, NCAA® Division I Men’s Basketball Championship South Regional 2008, 2010 & 2015, NCAA® Division I Men’s Basketball Final Four® 2011 & 2016 and hosts over 500 events annually.

I have been to NRG Park many times as a Houstonian and I can tell you that it has become more beautiful and sustainable. I have really enjoyed seeing the updates in the park and being able to tell a difference in the park since it has become NRG.

The new LED lights are part of a sustainability master plan for NRG Park™. NRG has also installed an eVgo® electric vehicle parking lot at its namesake stadium that includes six charging stations, and soon, with the installation of more than 700 solar panels, NRG Stadium will become the first professional football stadium in Texas to draw power from the sun.

NRG has taken over NRG Park and has made a powerful partnership come to life with many more updates in store for the park and Houston.


NRG is not just for professional football. You can check out the residential services they offer as well. I will be sharing with you their awesome Advantage Plan and it will have an amazing giveaway attached to it! Be on the look out soon!
