Innovation meets modern architecture in another beautiful example of solar energy powered venues.
The new home of the Sacramento Kings NBA Basketball team will be a 100% solar powered facility. 1.2 MW comes from roof mounted solar generation. Coupled with 11 MW from a nearby partner project solar farm, the entire facility will operate on solar power.

By soliciting community input there was a lot of local influence brought into the project in areas like the food menu. The site also incorporates tons of high-tech feature from robust wi-fi access to UHD screens on the world’s largest indoor scoreboard.
The $556.5M project is nearing completion as the NBA season gets ready to kick off in a few weeks.
