American Family Insurance

Rooftop | 1.2MW

American Family Insurance, a Fortune 500 company and multi-line insurer headquartered in Madison, WI, partnered with SunPeak to build the largest rooftop solar system in the state of WI at its national headquarters. The almost 1.2MW solar photovoltaic system covers a large rooftop on the corporate campus with 4,488 solar panels. This system will generate over 7% of their energy needs.

Reduced Electricity Costs

With a former utility blended cost of electricity of 8.5¢ / kWh, this system reduces American Family Insurances's levelized cost of energy over the life of the system to about 3.7¢ / kWh. The system will produce over $119,000 of direct energy cost savings per year. As the cost of electricity increases over time due to inflation, these energy savings will grow over time. 

$5.6 million are projected in energy savings over 30 years.
