Verizon Displays New Solar Panel Installation for Officials

Local officials recently received a tour of Verizon’s massive Silver Spring complex which now features one of the largest clean energy investments by a private company in Maryland. A major local employer, Verizon invested more than $100 million in 2013 as part of its sustainability initiative that included the installation of 5,500 solar panels – its largest such installation company-wide. 

The company’s Chesapeake Complex on Route 29 houses some 2,200 management and associate level employees working in engineering, marketing, sales, IT and three call centers. Verizon plans to expand its workforce at the complex in the near future.
