In an effort to turn Dodger Stadium into a more environmentally-friendly ballpark, several modifications were also made. The addition of a new stadium-wide cooling system will lower temperatures in all concession areas. Other environmental improvements include adding hand dryers in the restrooms and moving to waterless urinals, which will save up to 2.4 million gallons of water annually on the Field Level. Additionally, the club replaced the previous stadium lighting structure with an energy efficient one - Musco's Light-Structure Green system. The new lights will conserve energy by reducing more than 95% of the light that falls outside of the stadium and will keep unnecessary light out of the eyes of the players and fans.
In order to ensure the continued vitality of Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced a multi-faceted stadium improvement plan in April of 2008 that will bring the most modern amenities to Dodger fans while preserving the tradition of the historic venue, first opened in 1962. The improvements, anticipated to be completed by Opening Day of the 2012 season, are designed to protect Dodger Stadium's place as the home of Los Angeles baseball for the next 50 years
