Indy Motor Speedway Completes World’s Largest Sports Solar Farm

A ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 1 marked the opening of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
(IMS) Solar Farm. Consisting of 39,312 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels ground-mounted along
an under-utilized portion of the 1,000-acre campus, the 9-megawatt (MW) PV installation is the
largest solar farm at any sporting facility in the world, according to an IMS press release.

Co-developed by San Jose, California's SunWize Technologies and Phoenix-based Blue
Renewable Energy, the IMS Solar Farm will offset the equivalent of 10,288 tons of carbon per
year.


Blue Renewable Energy entered into a land-lease agreement with IMS to build the PV system
on the property. SunWize was responsible for its design, engineering and installation, while
Clēnera and Swinerton Builders completed the engineering and construction for Centaurus
Renewable Energy.
