United Solar is very pleased to be working with Inovateus and Ameridian Specialty Services, and we’re inspired by their enthusiasm to deploy solar energy in Ohio,” said Chris Bala

“United Solar is very pleased to be working with Inovateus and Ameridian Specialty Services, and we’re inspired by their enthusiasm to deploy solar energy in Ohio,” said Chris Bala, United Solar’s VP Sales Americas Central Region. “By installing it on their own headquarters they are demonstrating a strong commitment to help make Ohio a cleaner, greener place to live.”

“Our 30,000 square foot facility is the perfect place to install this solar system. With the federal and state funds available, our payback will occur in just a few years,” states Matt Owens, a NABCEP Certified Solar PV Installer and director of operations for Ameridian’s Solar and Renewable Energy Division. “Our business is installing these systems for commercial enterprises just like ourselves. It simply makes sense to invest in ourselves and lead by example. I’m looking forward to bringing clients here to see exactly how the system works,” Owens states.

“We have really enjoyed working with everyone at Ameridian. I enjoy spending time with them on projects and seeing it through to the end,” stated Peter Rienks, key accounts manager for Inovateus Solar. “I am very happy for them that they were able to take advantage of the Ohio incentives and save a lot of money on their own utility costs. Ameridian provided the highest quality installation for Dayton Power and Light and we are looking forward to working with them on many more mega-watts.”

Inovateus Solar spicified UNI-SOLAR flexible thin-film solar panels for the Ameridian installation. These panels create a lighter-weight, single-ply roofing membrane with modules that generate 144 watts each.

Recently voted one of the State of Indiana’s Top Companies to Watch, in the past six months Inovateus Solar has completed the largest solar installation in the state of Michigan and Indiana and some of the largest utility grade installations in the Midwest.
