The Philadelphia Eagles are now officially the greenest team in the NFL, and maybe in all of sports. Lincoln Financial Field, the friendly confines that the Eagles call home, will be self-powered using a combination of wind turbines, solar panels, and a biofuel co-generation system.

Lincoln Financial Field will meet all of its energy needs on-site by September 2011. When the field is not in use, it is expected to pump up to four megawatts of power back into the local grid.
