The rooftop, ground-mounted and parking-structure panels will be installed in New York, California, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey. When completed, Verizon will have the largest solar-generating capacity of any U.S. telecom company.

“Solar is a proven technology,” James Gowen, Verizon’s chief sustainability officer, was quoted as saying. “It didn’t hurt that the technology is getting better and prices are coming down.”
