Giants’ park gets greener

When baseball’s biggest stars converge on AT&T Park this July, the San Francisco Giants will boast something no other major-league team has at its stadium: a solar array.

PG&E will install solar panels—up to 590 total—on the Port Walk along McCovey Cove, on a newly erected canopy over the Willie Mays pedestrian ramp, and on the roof of the Giants Building. PG&E will connect the 120 kilowatts of power generated by the array into San Francisco’s power grid to help the city achieve its goal to become the greenest city in the nation.

If all goes according to plan, the project will be completed in time for the All-Star Game, which the Giants will host July 10.
