The IND Solar Farm project partners have received recognition for using airport land to help build a sustainable community. The IND Solar Farm won a 2015 Indianapolis Sustainability Award from the city at a ceremony in downtown Indianapolis on June 18, 2015. IND houses the largest solar farm of any airport in the world, which generates enough electricity to power 3,200 average homes for a year.
The Indianapolis Office of Sustainability created the awards to inspire innovation, showcase impact, reward leadership, and promote education around the principles of sustainability. It honors excellence in three categories: social, economic, and environmental sustainability. The IND Solar Farm won the environmental category award.
