The Indiana Rail Road Co. (INRD) has completed the installation of a rooftop solar project at its Indianapolis headquarters.

The new solar panels provide the facility with renewable, clean energy, helping to further reduce its overall environmental footprint and lower its energy costs.

"The solar energy system is expected to contribute almost half of the energy needed at INRD's headquarters. Not only will the solar panels improve the carbon footprint of the facility, they offer financial benefits," said INRD President and Chief Executive Officer Dewayne Swindall in a press release.

INRD has several other sustainability initiatives in place, including a LED lighting retrofitting program, investments in technological advances in fuel efficiency and a commitment to reducing the environmental footprint of operations, railroad officials said.
