St. Louis Cardinals Working Towards a "Triple Crown" for Resource Efficiency

The 2011 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals are accustomed to winning. With a total of 11 World Series titles under their belt—second only to the Yankees 27—it’s no surprise that they set the bar high for all aspects of their game, even off the field. One key to the Cardinals’ energy successes to date is that they commissioned an “investment-grade” energy audit in 2011 to identify potential energy efficiency measures for the ballpark. They found close to 200 cost-effective energy improvements, despite the fact that Busch Stadium was just built in 2006. The Cardinals have replaced over 1,000 traditional spot- and flood- lights with LED lamps to cut lighting power demand in several areas around the ballpark by 90 percent.
