This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

Minnesota Vikings, Juhl Wind Score a Huge Renewable Energy Touchdown | CleanTechnica

Minnesota Vikings, Juhl Wind Score a Huge Renewable Energy Touchdown | CleanTechnica | Sports Facility Management 3127639 | Scoop.it

Juhl Wind Inc, well-known for its commitment to community wind power, is teaming up with the Minnesota Vikings to tackle clean energy supply at Viking home games this NFL season.

 

Juhl will supply renewable energy credits (RECs) from one of their wind energy plants. This will counteract the energy consumed at games this year at the Mall of America Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

The total amount of energy ‘provided’ by Juhl during this football year will hit 520,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh), cutting 507,520 pounds of carbon emissions.

 

“The renewable energy produced will offset all the electricity used throughout Mall of America Field — from the concession stands and ticket offices, to the field lighting and scoreboards making the Vikings one of the only NFL teams to play in a 100% green-powered facility during the entire 2012-2013 season,” said President of Jul Wind Inc, Corey Juhl, in a statement.

 

Minnesota Vikings officials are hoping this encourages Minnesota residents to move towards clean energy.
