Taiwan's Kaohsiung Stadium 100% Solar Powered

Taiwan's Kaohsiung Stadium 100% Solar Powered

Here are some cool photos of Taiwan's 100% solar-powered coliseum Kaohsiung National Stadium. Opened in 2009 and with a capacity of 55,000, this super solar bowl was host to the 2009 World Games. It has some 8,844 solar panels that power 3,300 lights to illuminate the track and field. Apparently it only takes six minutes for the entire lighting system to activate. The architect for this sun-powered stadium is Toyo Ito. For more information, please visit the stadium's official website.

  2. Taiwan is so green powered. Solar power is big, everyone recycles everything, low pollution levels even in the cities. More countries should be like that IMHO.
