To the editor:
On Oct. 19, I was struck by an article in another publication announcing the start-up of Indianapolis International Airport’s extensive solar farm installation.
The article — and photograph of rows of solar panels (44,000 total) — were clearly intended to highlight the merit of a renewable energy application as well as “forward looking” thinking on the part of airport management. Indianapolis Power and Light has agreed to buy the farm’s power.
However, much more striking (and troublesome) to me was the relative lack of merit and cost effectiveness of the installation.
