INDIANAPOLIS – Pacers Sports & Entertainment today announced it has entered into a partnership with Electro Green Energy Solutions (EGES) (electrogreenenergy.com) and iSolar Brokers (isolarbroker.com), to install roof-top solar power generation and energy storage at the St. Vincent Center this summer. This project includes an off-grid, solar plus energy storage micro-grid solution, installed by Jefferson Electric, to delivery electricity consumed on the 4th floor of the St. Vincent Center.
“We are proud of our continued efforts to make our facilities as clean and green as possible,” said PS&E President & COO Rick Fuson. “This project aligns perfectly with our overall mission, and we are grateful to EGES and I-Solar Brokers for their partnership.”
“It has been a pleasure developing this project over the past several months and working with Pacers Sports & Entertainment,” said Nick Koon, vice president of EGES. “PS&E is part of a growing list of professional sports venues putting an emphasis on renewable energy and solar solutions recognizing it’s an essential part of the future.”
“This project will also be an opportunity to stimulate awareness and interest in renewable energy,” Bobby Starks-Gera, CEO iSolar Brokers, said.
The solar and energy storage system at SVC is the latest sustainability initiative PS&E has undertaken, a continual focus for the company since 2016. Other efforts include converting non-recyclable waste to energy; numerous recycling measures including cardboard, cans, glass and plastic bottles, document shredding; and staging zero-waste events.
The Pacers and Indiana Fever also are involved in Threes for Trees, planting a tree for every three-pointer made during their seasons.
