Inovateus Solar Completes NIPSCO Projects
Inovateus Solar has finished the first solar projects for Northern Indiana Public Service Co. The company says the work includes a ground-mount solar array at NIPSCO’s headquarters in Merrillville, built with zero-waste construction.
The 432-panel array installed at the utility’s headquarters will generate over 216,000 kilowatt-hours of clean power a year, and another 360-panel system was installed at NIPSCO’s LaPorte office, with another similar-sized array placed at the utility’s Valparaiso office.
Inovateus vice president of marketing and stability, Tyler Kanczuzewski, says the company is proud of the projects for two reasons.
“First, many of our employees are NIPSCO customers, so they, their families, and the entire Northern Indiana community are now benefiting from NIPSCO’s transition to cleaner resources to save energy and money. Second, these are our company’s first zero-waste solar projects. Thanks to John and his team, it was a great success, and we intend to continue the practice for our customers.”
Inovateus collected all packaging, scrap wire and wooden pallets from the projects and estimate their efforts prevented nearly 4 tons of waste going to Indiana landfills.
