Apartments go green for housing agency

April 11, 2012

A south-side apartment complex is going green thanks to a federal grant. The Indianapolis Housing Agency and Insight Development Corp. are installing 248 solar panels on buildings in Laurelwood Apartments. Most of the $345,000 project will be paid for with a Housing and Urban Development grant. Indianapolis Power & Light is expected to pay IHA about $20,000 a year for the power generated by the panels.
