Verizon is spending more than $13 million this year to install 3.5 MW of new solar power systems at three of its locations in New Jersey.
The company says the installations at its facilities in Carteret, Freehold and Piscataway are to begin over the next two months, with completion scheduled by the end of the year.
Over the last two years, Verizon has invested more than $34 million in its on-site green energy program in New Jersey. Upon completion of the new solar projects, Verizon will operate roughly 7 MW of green energy systems in the state. The systems are expected to produce more than 23 GWh of electricity annually.
