Icon Solar has been featured in the Batesville Herald-Tribune as one of the Batesville chamber members. Here’s an excerpt:

That’s why Icon Solar has been chosen to be a trusted partner in so many Solarize programs. We’ve been operating in Bloomington and Muncie Solarize and have recently been chosen for Solarize in the Greater Cincinnati area and, most recently announced, the Indianapolis area. These programs educate the public on solar while offering friendly competition among multiple solar companies and great customer options.

Earth Day Indiana 2018


The 2018 Earth Day Indiana Festival will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Historic Military Park at White River State Park. Come to the festival for local food vendors, kid’s activities, over 125 exhibitors, live music, and a 5K run/walk.

Better than driving downtown is to take IndyGo! Whether you plan to be on foot for the day or want to bring along your bike, IndyGo has you covered. If you bike and bus to Military Park we will watch your bike for free at our Pedal and Park area as you enjoy the festival or other downtown happenings. Just be sure to be back by 4pm.

Back in 2018 is the Recycle Run 5K! Run or walk a 5K route that is mostly along the White River! The 5K begins (at noon) and finishes at Historic Military Park at White River State Park but the majority of the course will take you upstream and then downstream along the White River. REGISTER FOR THE 5K OR A 1-MILE WALK AT RUNSIGNUP.

Come hang out with us and the fellow green community!

Dear California Traveler,
Hope you had a great time! Oh, the sight of so many solar panels makes my heart skip a beat. California has often led the country with pollution-beating alternative energies, and sometimes that leaves the rest of us wondering why.
