Solar Panels to be Installed at Colts’ Practice Facility
INDIANAPOLIS: Solar energy provider POWERHOME Solar will begin installing solar panels at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, the headquarters and practice facility for the Indianapolis Colts, in the upcoming months.
The new solar panels will provide the facility with renewable, clean energy, helping the franchise further reduce its overall carbon footprint and lower its energy costs.
“The Colts are committed to decreasing our energy use and becoming more sustainable throughout the organization,” said Pete Ward, Colts chief operating officer. “In addition to making our facility ‘greener,’ operating in a sustainable manner by using technology such as solar panels makes good business sense. Facilities that are more environmentally focused become more financially sound.”
POWERHOME Solar, headquartered in Mooresville, N.C., is one of the fastest growing American companies to specialize in solar energy and roofing services, and it entered the Indiana market earlier this year.
“The Indianapolis Colts are the fifth NFL franchise to utilize POWERHOME Solar to help meet sustainability goals,” said Jayson Waller, founder and CEO of POWERHOME Solar. “Large commercial sites help us educate consumers about the simplicity and benefits of renewable energy. We hope to encourage thousands of Colts fans to consider solar energy.”
POWERHOME Solar, the leading residential rooftop solar energy provider in seven states, is working with NFL and MLB franchises, academic institutions and professional athletes to help build stronger, healthier communities across the U.S. For more information, visit www.powerhome.com.
The Colts already boast several sustainability initiatives for gamedays at Lucas Oil Stadium including food rescue, recycling, the use of biodegradable service ware, sourcing from local farmers and a commitment to lowering energy use.
