Dominion's three solar projects in Indiana, Indy Solar I, Indy Solar II and Indy Solar III, entered service in Dec. 2013. (> View a news release.) Dominion acquired the projects in July 2013 from Sunrise Energy Ventures, LLC, Minnetonka, Minn.
Two of the projects, located southeast of Indianapolis in Franklin Township, are sited on 155 acres. The third, located southwest of Indianapolis, is sited on 134 acres. All three projects are on flat agricultural and forest land that are well suited for solar installation. The projects use standard photovoltaic technology with a fixed-axis system to generate a peak combined output of 28.6 megawatts of electricity.
The projects have 15-year power purchase agreements with Indianapolis Power and Light Company. AMEC, an international engineering and construction firm with U.S. headquarters in Tucker, Ga., built the three facilities.
