ENERGY STAR Labeled Building Profile

Southfield, Michigan/Telegraph Road/Verizon Wireless
Map It!


The ENERGY STAR is yet another recognition of the ongoing commitment of Verizon Wireless to environmentally friendly green practices. Verizon Wireless has more than 60 retail stores that have earned the ENERGY STAR label.  The energy efficiency measures taken at the Southfield, MI store are not unique, but rather part of an ongoing commitment to energy efficiency within our company.

To make Communications Stores more energy efficient, Verizon Wireless:
Purchases ENERGY STAR qualified appliances/equipment
Uses efficient compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and T-8 lighting
Utilizes motion sensors for lighting and vending machines
Removes excessive/redundant lighting
Uses LED exit signs
Installs efficient HVAC units
Implements HVAC preventive maintenance programs
Controls and monitors HVAC and lighting with an energy management system
Insulates water heater and related piping
-- Replaced exterior HPS fixtures with fluorescent


These environmentally responsible characteristics play a key role to help Verizon Wireless Communications Stores reduce waste and emissions and conserve resources. 


In addition, Verizon Wireless helps the environment and survivors of domestic violence through its HopeLine? program. Verizon Wireless collects no-longer-used wireless phones and equipment from any wireless service provider. The phones are either refurbished or recycled. With the funds raised from the sale of the refurbished phones, Verizon Wireless donates cash grants, wireless phones, and airtime to non-profit domestic violence agencies for use by survivors. Through HopeLine, more than 1.4 million phones have been properly disposed of in an environmentally sound way and more than 200 tons of electronics waste and batteries have been kept out of landfills since 2001.


Verizon Wireless works every day to protect our environment and give our customers opportunities to do the same. Environmental stewardship is engrained in Verizon's heritage, and the company prides itself on having a positive influence on the environment in which it operates.
