Emergent Solar Energy Starts Engines on Abel Construction Indiana Headquarters 210kWp Solar Project
By: Emergent Solar Energy LLC
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.
Mitchell Abel, vice president of business development for Abel Construction, said the investment is a major step in the company's sustainable energy objectives. It also reinforces the company's commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
"By adopting this clean energy solution, Abel Construction aims to become a role model within the industry and inspire other businesses to embrace solar energy as a viable and eco-friendly alternative,"
The solar installation utilizes high-efficiency, bifacial solar panels to capture sunlight on both sides and convert it into usable energy. The project will contribute to a substantial reduction in carbon emissions, estimated to be equivalent to planting 336 trees annually.
Lipinski said integrating solar energy systems into commercial establishments has become a competitive option for business owners faced with rising utility electricity rates.
"This project showcases the tremendous potential of commercial solar power to provide sustainable and cost-effective energy solutions, ultimately reducing the environmental impact of businesses,"
In addition to the environmental benefits, the roof-mounted solar installation will yield substantial economic advantages for Abel Construction.
Lipinski said the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act has impacted industry interest in solar energy.
"The legislation has increased federal tax benefits for businesses making investments in solar energy projects and helping create more compelling project economic returns," Lipinski said.
