Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A Louisiana company is going to new heights to save energy by going green.
Lamar Advertising, a national billboard company, is going to take approximately 1,050 billboards in Louisiana, and rebuild them using energy efficient technology.
The project is a huge undertaking that started last year with a grant from the Department of Energy.
CEO Sean Reilly says it's great to go green.
"Very exciting project, between the 3,000 solar panels, and new led lighting that is super efficient, we're going to save lots of power." said Reilly
