Blue Earth completes rooftop solar project in Indianapolis

Blue Earth Inc. (NASDAQ: BBLU) said Jan. 13 that the Lenape II Solar project, a 4.732-MW (dc) photovoltaic facility located in Indianapolis, Indiana, has achieved commercial operation.

Subsidiary Blue Earth Solar Inc. provided the complete engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the rooftop and carport project to the owner of the asset, NRG Solar DG LLC, a subsidiary of NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG). The offtaker for the project’s output, Indianapolis Power & Light, granted permission to operate the solar array system in parallel with the utility’s network.

“The final completion of the Lenape II project is a great demonstration of our execution capability,” said Bob Powell, CEO of Blue Earth. “It is foundational as we not only were able to complete the project, but it also shows our ability to work with multiple partners to make Lenape II a great success.”

“We are delighted to bring this project to commercial operation,” added Ruben Fontes, President of Blue Earth Solar. “We are proud of our solar division’s efforts and the collaborative partnership displayed with the NRG team throughout the project.”
