Coors Field Solar Power
In 2007 the Rockies installed 46 solar panels to run the LED board. The 9.89 killowatt solar array will produce over 14,000 killowatt hours of energy. That is enough to run the LED board for a year! In a walkway under the system, the monitering system will show the fans the real time consumption of the Rockpile LED board as well as the solar array production.
