Fuelling the Primeira Liga

OS Belenenses is a football club in the Primeira Liga in Portugal. We’re changing all lighting to LED, significantly lowering OS Belenenses energy consumption, at no cost to the club whatsoever. The reason is that we’re also installing 550 kWp of solar panels on their workout facilities in the stadium area. The energy produced will be used by Portuguese consumers, paying for OS Belenenses LED lighting in the process. As a part of this project, OS Belenenses will also replace their washing machines and dryers, that today run on gas, to newer equipment that run on electricity.
