The fact that these type of things aren't implemented when they build these Billion dollar stadiums is beyond me. I mean all of them have some cool tech and design, but with the kind of money dumped into stadiums they could probably at the very least power themselves or even provide power back into the grid itself with a little ingenuity.

Agreed. I always thought that there was a huge missed opportunity with the rebuilding of New Orleans after Katrina. They should have set aside a couple of grand for each house that was rebuilt with Federal money for a solar panel on the roof. It would jumstart the solar panel industry and put some energy back into the grid.
