This week the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled a new set of proposed regulations for existing coal-fired power plants.
Once complete, the 44,000 solar panels will generate enough energy to power more than 2,000 homes.
The panels are part of a larger effort to create the 'Aerotropolis' or airport city.
The Indy Airport is currently waiting for approvals from the FAA for a land release for a new solar farm on the property.
Local high school students compete globally in their solar bikes and cars.
