Carmel is going Solar!

Telamon Energy Solutions to Bring Solar to the City of Carmel

CARMEL, IN – MAY 24, 2016 – Telamon Corporation’s Energy Solutions (TES) division is excited to announce that it has signed a contract with the City of Carmel, Indiana to develop a solar power system at two separate locations within the city.

The first solar array will be located at 106th & Gray Road (Water Plant 1) while the second will be on Hazel Dell Parkway just north of the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

The 1.08 MW DC solar power system will annually produce up to 1.54 million kilowatt hours of renewable energy while powering various aspects of the wastewater treatment plant and water plant 1.

The system will offset 1,065 metric tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of powering 146 average-sized American homes for one year.

“Renewable energy, such as solar, is a better energy source because we don’t have to pay other countries to get it and, even more importantly, it will help keep our air clean and reduce the cost and suffering of those with lung diseases. In this case, because we can reduce the amount of electricity we buy, our rate of return on our investment is competitive so it is also a good financial investment for our taxpayers,” said Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard.

“Telamon is excited to serve as the developer and construction administrator of this project,” said Reggie Henderson, Vice President & General Manager of Telamon Energy Solutions. “We look forward to helping the City of Carmel save approximately $4.4 million over the course of 25 years while also promoting the importance of clean energy within the city’s environment.”

Construction is expected to start in August and conclude in December. Telamon has partnered with Inovateus Solar based out of South Bend on this project and will go to bid for an EPC contractor (engineering, procurement, & construction) within the next month.
