Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
In Indianapolis, Indiana the IND Solar Farm at the Indianapolis International Airport has introduced unique opportunities to local businesses. Several Indianapolis metropolitan-based organizations such as the Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA), the City of Indianapolis, GES, Telamon Corporation, Johnson Melloh Solutions, Cenergy Power and Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL) have partnered in bringing the IND Solar Farm to fruition.
Project partner Cenergy Power, a value-added solar EPC company, has been leading the engineering, procurement and construction of the 12.5 megawatts DC solar farm. Cenergy’s team of seasoned developers, power engineers and construction managers rely on their extensive utility-scale expertise in order to propel the solar farm towards completion ahead of budget and schedule. Their pragmatic and collaborative approach to small utility solar projects is a key reason for their strong growth as a value-added solar partner for early-stage developers and long-term project owners.
The IND Solar Farm is a high profile project that fits well within the organization’s capabilities thus, making the relationship with the IND Solar Farm a perfect match. By taking a very diligent and methodical approach to the design, permitting, procurement and construction planning of the IND Solar Farm project, Cenergy Power is making it possible for the project to be completed ahead of schedule and below budget, which is great for Cenergy Power’s reputation as a “value-added partner” for small utility projects.
“Cenergy Power feels very fortunate to have been selected as the solar engineering and construction firm to build the largest solar project at a U.S. airport,” said William Pham, CEO of Cenergy Power. “We want to thank the project owners, the Indianapolis Airport Authority, and Indianapolis Power and Light for not only selecting us as their solar engineering and construction partner, but also for supporting our commitment to complete the project well ahead of schedule and budget.”
Utilities are under increasing pressure to implement renewable energy programs while financial renewable energy developers are constantly in search of professional partners on the ground to de-risk and optimize their returns on renewable projects. Cenergy strategically positions itself as the go-to partner for participants in large commercial and small utility solar projects. Cenergy’s strong understanding of the solar landscape has translated into increasing demand for its services.
The $35-$40 million dollar alternative energy project is a significant public-private partnership that includes the Indianapolis Airport Authority, the City of Indianapolis, and privately held businesses General Energy Solutions USA, Telamon Corporation, Johnson Melloh Solutions, Cenergy Power and Indianapolis Power & Light Company. All entities involved are committed to finding creative solutions to increase sustainability in Indianapolis while helping diversify generation sources of electric power for Indianapolis business and residential customers.
