Project Overview

The Chicagoland Skydiving Center believes that skydiving should be one of the most unforgettable events of your entire life. Since 1968, they’ve carried this passion for perfection, which has driven them to be different. This mission has ultimately led them to take action by doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint in meaningful ways. A rooftop solar array was among their number of green initiatives.

"The service I received from Verde on my 20,000 square foot facility was first-class from start to finish. This project proved to be very challenging for a number of reasons. The entire team at Verde handled all of the complications and delays professionally and were able to get this project approved and across the finish line. If I had to do it all over again, Verde would be the only company I would consider.”
