The NPB after the big quake, Day 113 [July 2, 2011]

by on Jul.02, 2011 @ 8:59 pm, under NPB

I'll keep this updated throughout the day.


Hanshin Tigers

The Tigers are hoping to cut back on energy use at Koshien Stadium (night games between 7/1 - 9/22) by about 15%.  As part of that effort, they've started adjusting their light use:  prior to this month, they started games with all 6 of their light banks turned on and today, they started with just 2 banks of lights and turned on the remaining 4 at around 6:30pm.

Yomiuri Giants

The Giants announced that their peak energy use during last night's game against the Chunichi Dragons was 3,109kW.  That's down about 44% from last year.

Seibu Lions

The Lions announced yesterday that they'll try to turn off more lights (from 33% to up to 50%) during night games in an effort to save more energy.
