The facility includes more than 41,000 solar panels, each capable of producing 280 watts at peak power production. The panels are installed on ground-mounted racking systems that fill nearly 60 acres of land near the airport exit from I-70. “The airport serves as the gateway into Indianapolis, and this is a great way to showcase our efforts to become a more sustainable city,” said Mayor Greg Ballard. ”Installing solar panels on airport property not suitable for other development with the intent to power our city using renewable energy sources and generate revenue demonstrates the culture of innovation and commitment to sustainability that has taken root throughout Indianapolis.”
