Verizon Communications, parent company of Verizon Wireless, today announced plans to invest $100 million in solar power and fuel cells. The alternate energy sources will be used at 19 different Verizon facilities in Arizona, California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York. and North Carolina. The reason behind Verizon's decision is two-fold: First, it wants to reduce its carbon foorprint; and second, it wants to have back-up power supplies on hand to prevent network outages during events such as hurricanes. The fuel cells will rely on natural gas, which pollutes less when compared to the diesel generators used at a number of Verizon's facilities. Verizon expects the energy project to completed next year.

Kudos to Verizon

For stepping into the 21st century. If only more corporations would do this! We can, and one day will survive on only renewable sources of energy, and this is a step in the right direction.
Bravo! Finally they are putting their tons of cash to good use and it will benefit them in the end as well! This is the type of initiative all business should take. POWER YOURSELF!
