CAMPAIGN: Sustainability


When Verizon made its $100 million investment last year in onsite green energy, the company knew it would be money well spent. After all, this investment would generate more than 90 million kilowatt hours of clean fuel cell and renewable solar power at nearly 20 Verizon facilities in six states – Maryland included.

6 Reasons for Solar Investments

  1. It’s renewable since sunlight is a consistent power source, which means it always will be available.
  2. Annual returns from green and renewable energy range anywhere from 5 percent to 30 percent, and the system will function for 20 to 40 years with little to no need for upgrades or additional investment.
  3. Solar cells don’t release gases or anything else into the air, which makes solar energy environmentally friendly. Solar panels are extremely reliable, with no moving parts that require replacement.
