The New York Jets are now more than just green in uniform with the completion of a new rooftop 3,000 solar panel installation on their Atlantic Health Training Center.

The rooftop project is owned by solar service provider Syncarpha Capital, who will sell the electricity produced by the solar panels to the New York Jets under a long-term purchase agreement. No capital outlay was required by the Jets, who expect to save tens-of-thousands a year in energy costs.

“We are proud to be green in color and also in deed,” Mr Sheely said. “We chose the right partners and are thrilled about what this installation will do for our organization, our community, and hopefully for inspiring the entire league.”

The panels were manufactured by Yingli Green Energy Holding (NYSE: YGE) and construction and design were managed by Sundurance Energy and Evolution Energies.
