Emergent Solar Energy has completed its latest commercial project, a 210-kW, roof-mounted bifacial solar installation, at the Indianapolis headquarters of Abel Construction Company, near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The building also is home to Abel Motorsports, which owns a racing team in the Indy NXT racing series sanctioned by IndyCar. Indy NXT was previously called Indy Lights. Abel Motorsports is also, for the first time, fielding a car in the 2023 Indianapolis 500, with driver RC Enerson.
Jeremy Lipinski, managing partner at Emergent Solar Energy, based in the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette, said the project is one of the largest of its kind in Indianapolis.
“It is also an example of how solar can be integrated into existing commercial buildings to offset utility-purchased electricity, provide economic benefits through commercial tax incentives and help businesses accomplish their sustainability goals,” Lipinski said.
