SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 16, 2020 — Veale Outdoor Advertising, a Sonoma County based company that specializes in outdoor advertisements, is making the transition to 100% renewable energy.
For many of the County’s residents, passing by the electronic billboard in Rohnert Park on Highway 101 is a regular, if not daily, occurrence. Now, the billboard, along with others owned by Veale Outdoor Advertising throughout the County, are powered by locally generated renewable energy from Sonoma Clean Power.
Veale Outdoor Advertising, like many businesses today, has been exploring ways to reduce its environmental impact. Upgrading to EverGreen, the 100% renewable option from Sonoma Clean Power, is one of the most significant steps the company has taken to date.
By choosing EverGreen, nearly all the greenhouse gas emissions associated with Veale Outdoor Advertising’s electricity use will be eliminated.
“After over 50 years of service and support from our community, we are honored to give back by lowering our carbon footprint by converting all of our outdoor billboards, both static and electronic, to EverGreen sustainable energy. We are so proud to be part of this new sustainable form of renewable energy,” said Tom Jackson, General Manager of Veale Outdoor Advertising.
EverGreen is the first service of its kind available to businesses in California. Sonoma Clean Power is the only energy provider in the State to offer an electricity option that is entirely renewable and local, that runs 24/7.
The majority of 100% renewable services are made from solar and still rely on natural gas or other non-renewables when solar energy is not being generated. EverGreen is different.
By utilizing local solar power from facilities in Willits, Cloverdale, and Petaluma when the sun is out, and geothermal power from The Geysers when the sun is down, homes and businesses who’ve chosen EverGreen never encourage the burning of fossil fuels.
For businesses interested in investing in renewable energy, EverGreen can also be a cheaper and easier alternative to installing a commercial solar system.
“We are very excited to have a local business like Veale Outdoor Advertising making a visible and meaningful commitment to 100% renewable energy in our community. Their efforts today are helping to lead us toward a healthier future for Sonoma and Mendocino counties,” said Erica Torgerson, Director of Customer Service at Sonoma Clean Power.
