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 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.”
“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 is working with NFL and MLB franchises, academic institutions and professional athletes to help build stronger, healthier communities across the United States.
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.
