"We appreciate the opportunity to work with Danfoss, Inovateus Solar and Richmond Power and Light on this solar installation, which will benefit IMPA and our member community of Richmond as well as assist us in expanding our generation portfolio," commented Raj Rao, President and CEO of IMPA. "We hope to construct an IMPA solar park that not only adds a valuable source of renewable energy to our portfolio, but is educational to the community as well."

The project is expected to generate 1615 MWh/year of renewable energy for IMPA's members.

Based on its quality and reliability, the QLX 1 MW central inverter from Danfoss was an ideal fit for the outdoor environment in Indiana. The QLX is equipped with ShowerPower® power stack technology and Danfoss VLT® variable speed drives to improve performance in outdoor environments and reduce maintenance.

"We are excited to be chosen as a partner with Inovateus, the engineering consultant for this IMPA 1 MW installation," said Mark Haug, Director, Strategic Sales and Marketing for Danfoss Solar Inverters in the US. "Danfoss looks forward to a long-term partnership, which will be mutually beneficial and allow us the opportunity to win future business with these two proactive companies."
