Indiana Solar Array Contract Announced

The project in Marion, Ind., will consist of 9,972, 310-watt solar panels and 11 Nextronex 250 inverters and will provide the grid with the equivalent energy to power more than 350 homes.

South Bend, Ind.-based Inovateus Solar announced July 28 that it was awarded the installation of a 2.5-megawatt AC, 17-acre solar array project for Indiana Michigan Power, which is an operating unit of American Electric Power. The project site is in Marion, Ind., adjacent to the utility's Deer Creek substation. The groundbreaking ceremony took place July 24.

"Inovateus Solar is extremely happy to be working with I&M and AEP on this groundbreaking project for our region," said company President T.J. Kanczuzewski. "We applaud I&M's commitment to solar energy, and we are dedicated to making this project a success for everyone involved."

The project will consist of 9,972, 310-watt solar panels and 11 Nextronex 250 inverters and will provide the grid with the equivalent energy to power more than 350 homes.

"The environmental offsets of the Deer Creek array are significant," said Nathan Vogel, senior account executive and project manager for Inovateus Solar. "It's equivalent to the energy of over 7,600 barrels of oil per year, 43 tankers of gasoline per year, or burning almost 18 rail cars of coal per year. We are so pleased to be working with our own Northern Indiana utility, Indiana Michigan Power, on this project."

Indiana Michigan Power has its headquarters in Fort Wayne. It employs 2,450 people and serves more than 589,000 customers.
