Verizon Dips Toe Into Solar
Verizon says it’s installing 140 solar panels at its central office building in Tampa Florida. The project is expected to generate an average of 19 kilowatts to 21 kilowatts of daily energy production, reducing the building’s normal power consumption by 5.5 hours per day.
The company intends to take advantage of net metering rules being considered by the Florida Public Service Commission that would allow independent producers of solar and other alternative energy sources to offset energy consumption with annual electric bill credits and deliver excess customer-owned renewable energy to the electric utility.
The installation of the solar panels will cost approximately $300,000, according to Ecotality Life.
