After an exciting game that went into overtime, the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last night, much to the delight of their supporters. However, the true triumph for climate activists took place behind closed doors. The NFL's biggest game of the year took place in a stadium powered entirely by renewable energy for the first time.

The Las Vegas Raiders' home field, Allegiant Stadium, served as the venue for Super Bowl LVIII. The stadium announced in October 2023 that, in collaboration with NV Energy, it had fully switched to renewable energy. All of the stadium's events are powered by renewable energy sources that are all produced in Nevada. A report published in USA Today states that 621,000 solar panels that are situated in the Nevada desert contribute to the renewable energy source.

From the lights on the field that recorded every pass made by 49ers' Brock Purdy and Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes to the massive setup for Usher's halftime show, the Super Bowl was undoubtedly a high-wattage affair. Fortunately, there was more than enough power generated by the solar panel array to power the large event.

CEO of NV Energy Doug Cannon claims that the panels generate enough electricity to power 60,000 homes. The panels had to generate 10 megawatts in order for a big event like the Super Bowl to function properly. That can supply 46,000 homes with electricity.

However, Allegiant Stadium uses more than just energy to stay environmentally friendly. They also divert cigarette waste from landfills and turn it into energy, reuse, repurpose, or donate wastewater, and divert grass clippings to an on-site biomass machine for composting. And all of the food that the stadium produces? Additionally, they have a program in place to gather food scraps that can either be composted or used as animal feed.
All of this indicates that they are spearheading the movement to demonstrate how we can keep enjoying the entertainment we love while simultaneously reducing our environmental impact.
