NRG and The Kraft Group have inked an energy supply agreement for Foxborough, Mass.-based Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and the New England Revolution, and Patriot Place, a shopping, dining and entertainment complex.

Under the agreement, NRG will triple the amount of renewable solar power generated at Patriot Place, including the addition of a utility-scale wind turbine. In addition, NRG will provide all the additional power for the nearly 70,000-seat stadium and the more than one-million-square-foot retail and entertainment center.

The 1 MW project is in addition to an existing 525 kV photovoltaic power system at Patriot Place, creating one of the largest solar power systems at an NFL stadium. Construction of the new system is expected to be complete in time for the 2012-2013 NFL season, NRG says.
