Solential Energy Previews Electrify Indiana Conference Next Thursday, September 22

In terms of energy, 2022 has been one for the books and we still have more than three months to go. Hoosiers, like the rest of the country, have seen their electric rates go through the roof. Now, with the passage of the federal Inflation Reduction Act and its incentives for renewable energy and energy storage development, along with the push for greater adoption of electric vehicles, many of us are asking, “What next?”

The “what next” is a special, high-level event devoted entirely to Indiana’s energy future: the 2022 Electrify Indiana Conference. Hosted by electric generation and distribution cooperatives Hoosier Energy and Wabash Valley Power Alliance and in partnership with the Beneficial Energy League, this all-things electric event will be held Thursday, September 22, 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the Westin Indianapolis. Open to energy industry companies such as Solential Energy, policy makers, infrastructure providers, and commercial/residential energy consumers, Electrify Indiana sessions will address hot topics including:

  • Beneficial Electrification Opportunities in Indiana
  • Perspective of Indiana Utility Leaders
  • Grid Impacts
  • Microgrids
  • Electric Vehicle Funding Opportunities
  • Consumer Facing Programs
  • Electric School Buses
  • Grid Scale Storage

Solential Energy will be attending and exhibiting at Electrify Indiana

 Solential has a longstanding relationship with Indiana’s electric cooperatives at both the generation and distribution level and the local level. Between 2017-2019, we worked with Wabash Valley Power Alliance to design, develop, and now maintain six community solar projects across Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. These extremely popular solar projects were created for Wabash Valley with local rural electric cooperatives to make affordable, renewable solar energy available to businesses, farms and families in small town communities.

One of these is a community solar project in Wheatfield, Indiana. It provides 40% of the power to three schools in the county’s school district. Find details on these community solar projects here.

Solential currently is developing a 7 MW solar array on 60 acres for Hendricks Power, a rural electric cooperative in Hendricks County, Indiana. The goal is to provide more affordable, sustainable solar-powered electricity to the co-op’s 35,000 customers. The solar array will be commissioned and generating energy by mid 2023. Learn more about this co-op solar project here.

We believe Indiana and its electric cooperatives, municipalities, water/wastewater utilities, agriculture, and commercial enterprises face many transformational energy-related opportunities in the coming months and years. In particular, the Inflation Reduction Act will provide more incentives for solar energy adoption as well as much needed energy story solutions. Additionally, Solential is actively involved in developing complex energy solutions for our customers that include microgrids, energy storage and floatovoltaics. The opportunities for electricity-related innovation and strategic problem solving are endless!

Attending Electrify Indiana on behalf of Solential are Jim Shaw, President and CEO; Corey Miller, director of sales; David Berty, PE, CEM, director of project development; and Mark Falahee, director of business development. We will be attending the educational sessions, networking with colleagues and customers, and welcoming guests to our booth WHERE IS IT.
