The Indianapolis International Airport (IND) Solar Farm will be 12.5MW DC
Lawrence, MA - September 24, 2013 - Solectria Renewables, LLC, a leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that Cenergy Power, the general EPC contractor on behalf of the project owners, has chosen Solectria Renewables to power the 12.5MW DC IND Solar Farm at Indianapolis International Airport. Twenty Solectria Renewables SGI 500XT's will power this site and are scheduled to be commissioned and deployed in October.
Cenergy Power and Solectria Renewables worked closely to develop the best possible solution for this site. "Solectria Renewables is an extraordinary partner," said Andrew Goldin, Senior Vice President of EPC Operations for Cenergy Power. "From the beginning of this project, their sales and service team were supportive on every level. That combined with their unprecedented inverters with 98% CEC efficiency and unbelievable reliability makes them our preferred inverter partner. With their help, we will finish this project ahead of schedule."
All partners involved in this solar farm project are committed to increasing the city's sustainability while helping to grow and diversify renewable sources of electricity to power the growth and development of Indianapolis. The renewable energy generated by the solar farm will prevent approximately 10,700 tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the environment each year-the equivalent of removing approximately 2,000 cars from the roads. It is expected to generate more than 12.5 million kilowatt hours of electric energy annually, enough to power more than 1,200 average American homes annually.
"Cenergy Power's team has widespread utility-scale solar expertise and went through an extensive process to choose their inverter supplier," said Allison Duffy, Regional Business Development Manager for Solectria Renewables. "It is an honor to not only be chosen for this project, but to know that one of our most valued customers sees Solectria as their 'go-to' partner and realizes our inverters are the best option for this large utility-scale project."
