More Light On The New Solar Powered Football Stadium by XavierBlue(m): 9:53pm On Dec 11, 2015
After seeing the latest news regarding the solar powered field in Lagos, I decided googling to decipher it use and significance. And for those who asked for it use. I don't know if they are making references to the field, light or stadium. But Here is what Wikipedia has to say.
Energy Efficient Stadiums is the latest trend
of environmentalism in sports . Many
stadiums are beginning to take measures to
become more environmentally friendly and
energy efficient , such as using solar energy
to power the stadiums and using reusable
raw materials. The first stadium successfully
built to use 100 percent solar power is the
Kaohsiung National Stadium in Kaohsiung,
Taiwan . It earned the nickname of the
'dragon' stadium. Completed in 2009, the
55,000 capacity stadium was built for the
World Games , which took place in July 2009.
After the conclusion of the World Games, the
stadium will be used mainly for rugby games
and other athletic events. Japanese
architect Toyo Ito designed the stadium
which incorporates 8,844 solar panels on
the roof. These solar panels provide enough
energy to power the 3,300 lights and two
giant television screens. The stadium
provides so much power, and not all of it is
needed to power the stadium. The
Taiwanese government plans to sell the
excess energy. The stadium will prevent 660
tons of carbon dioxide from being released.
Not only is the Kaohsiung National Stadium
100 percent solar powered, but all of the raw
materials used in the stadium are reusable.

This means that the facility in Lagos will provide for it daily and annually resources, and if built to the capacity in Taiwan, the excess energy-ectricity, obtained might be given out to the neighboring area.
