Solis Partners Installs Solar Power at Verizon Wireless’s Network Switch Center
MANASQUAN, N.J. (Nov 5, 2013) – Solis Partners has announced the completion of a solar power installation for Verizon Wireless, operator of the nation’s largest 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network and largest, most reliable 3G network.
Designed, engineered and constructed by Solis Partners, a leading commercial solar provider, the solar array consists of 560 panels that will generate over 160,000 kilowatt-hours of clean energy in the first year. Over the life of the system, this will equate to the reduction of more than 2,720 metric tones of CO2 gas emissions from the environment.
The solar project in New Jersey is the first for Verizon Wireless outside of the two solar arrays that have been installed in California. “We had worked for the past two years with Solis to understand our options and map out the best path for us to install solar panels at our switches,” said Laurie Gebhardt, Manager – Planning & Support at Verizon Wireless. “Solis was able to seamlessly integrate the solar array into our highly critical data switch facility.”
“We are thrilled to have helped Verizon Wireless develop and incorporate an onsite renewable energy generation source into their energy mix and business operations,” said Jamie Hahn, co-founder and managing director of Solis Partners. “This solar energy system will not only reduce their carbon emissions but lower their operating costs. We look forward to working together with the Verizon Wireless team to continue to reach their sustainability goals.”
