February 22, 2018 - Madison, WI. As a leading commercial solar photovoltaic developer in the Midwest, SunPeak successfully installed four of the six largest rooftop solar systems in Wisconsin in 2017. Electricity generated from these solar systems is 40% lower on average than traditional utility costs, which significantly cuts costs for companies while reducing their carbon footprint.
SunPeak’s top four projects include: American Family Insurance (1.2 MW, Madison), Certco (726 kW, Madison), Badger Meter (700 kW, Milwaukee), and Central Storage & Warehouse (746 kW, Milwaukee). The largest of the four installments, American Family Insurance headquarters, now produces approximately 1.4 million kilowatt hours annually and from nearly 4,500 solar panels. This is enough power to energize about 130 homes annually.
“American Family’s competitive position is strengthened through a solid energy and carbon emissions strategy that improves expense efficiency, mitigates risk, fosters engagement in the community and serves our brand promise. In order to achieve this goal, we need to maintain adaptability to a dynamic energy environment and the recent solar installation at our National Headquarters is an example of the steps we are taking to fulfill our commitment. Sean Hyland, Facilities Program Administrator, American Family Insurance
Another of SunPeak’s most notable 2017 projects was Central Storage & Warehouse (CSW), a family-owned refrigerated and freezer warehouse, that partnered with SunPeak for the second time to cumulatively install more rooftop solar than any other WI-based business. CSW now utilized natural light to power much of their refrigeration needs.
Part of what made 2017 such a monumental year for SunPeak was the successful acquisition of grants to provide cost-effective opportunities for their customers. This is a trend SunPeak is continuing throughout 2018 to provide organizations all across the globe with renewable energy.
