Now, the ‘Gentlemen’s Game’ will be played in an eco-friendly stadium in Bengaluru as the Chinnaswamy Stadium has launched a 400kv rooftop solar power system to meet energy requirements of the stadium. The solar panels are installed on the top of the eastern stands of Chinnaswamy Stadium and will provide significant amount of electricity to power the stadium, though floodlights won’t be powered by it. It is expected that the installed solar power system will generate 1,700 units of power everyday while the stadium requires ~5k units of power daily that makes ~16 lakh units of power annually which costs around ₹1-1.2 crore according to Brijesh Patel, secretary, Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA).Patel said that the second phase of the project was planned to be installed on the top of western stands and together, the systems are expected to generate 5.9 lakh units of solar power annually. Out of which, ~4 lakh units will be supplied to grid while rest will be supplied to citizens. It’s a good move by KSCA to go for eco-friendly and feasible means of power generation and consumption. Though state boards are independent to make such decisions, still being the richest cricket board of the world, BCCI should promote such projects in major stadiums of the country. Sport governing bodies of the world are concerned about the environmental issues and trying to put certain efforts to make their respective games both enjoyable as well as eco-friendly as Brazil, the host of 2014 FIFA World Cup aimed to make the event eco-friendly and did decent job towards it. Similarly, Qatar, the host of 2022 FIFA World Cup promised sustainable stadium for the quadrennial fair.
