The Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA) has chosen a joint venture group between two locally owned companies, Johnson Melloh Solutions and Telamon, to construct a second 10 MW solar farm on Indianapolis International Airport (IND) property.
Bulldog Energy Airport and Indy Airport Solar Project II will finance, design, construct and operate the facility on land leased from the IAA.
The second solar farm is located next to the first phase solar farm, which is being constructed and represents the outcome of Bulldog Energy and Indy Airport Solar’s collaboration.
The two projects are expected to have a combined capacity of 20MW.
The preparation stage has already completed by receiving design and utility interconnection studies.
The construction for the phase II will break ground at the third quarter of 2013.
Robert Duncan, IAA’s executive director said: “Development of a second IND-based solar farm is the result of our continued focus on both economic sustainability and environmental commitments. The solar farms allow previously undeveloped land to begin generating solar energy as well as significant sources of non-airline revenues for the IAA.”
