San Diego Padres Stadium, also known as Petco Park Stadium, first opened in Downtown San Diego, California, in 2004. The stadium seats more than 42,000 spectators and regularly hosts games, concerts, and other major events. Not including the ball field, the facility is approximately 822,783 square feet.
The stadium is looking to commission its own new chiller plant to improve operational efficiencies, reducing the energy required to produce chilled water. After a competitive RFP process, Ecosystem was chosen to design and implement a new chiller plant within the stadium. This will also offset the high cost of purchasing chilled water through a third-party utility.
Ecosystem is also looking at other measures to help the stadium become carbon neutral in line with the City of San Diego’s goal of becoming net-zero by 2035.
