Something more powerful than Barry Bonds...

The San Francisco Giants are planning to install solar panels on their stadium to generate power for the grid.

Together with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) the SF baseball club has partnered to put in 590 solar panels that'll generate 123 kilowatts of power - however all that juice won't be used for the stadium's electricity needs, it'll benefit the city instead.

I think this is a pretty darn cool idea, although it doesn't seem like an awful lot of power I suppose every little bit helps - and maybe it'll give the press a little distraction from the whole Bonds/steroid scandal.

  • Great news, eh? Since this doesn't really benefit the ballpark - at least not directly - I'm wondering if it's a PR move in hopes of distracting folks from the controversy dogging Barry Bonds. Regardless, it's a great development. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and that park is a really attractive, comfortable venue with good views of the action.
