The Detroit Lions are among the pro football leaders – now there’s a phrase you don’t hear often – in utilizing solar power. This past week North Carolina’ s Power Home Solar announced a partnership with the team that includes solar projects at both Ford Field and team training facilities in nearby Allen Park.

With this announcement comes a major milestone for solar in the NFL: each of the league’s eight divisions now include at least one team with solar capabilities. The NFL leads the four major North American pro sports leagues in terms of the number of teams with installed capacity at 12 – 33% more than the MLB and NBA and 200% more than the NHL.
