Second Street Apartments

Rooftop l 19kW

Second Street Apartments is proud to be a small company offering high quality apartments in Madison's favorite urban neighborhoods. The Second Street Apartments are located in the eclectic Atwood neighborhood. Solar is common for homes in this neighborhood and being the first multi-family dwelling to add solar panels is an honor.

The owners looked at solar in the past, but found it was too expensive. With the recent drop in solar prices and SunPeak’s global buying power, a high value system was proposed at a fraction of past quotes. SunPeak provided both solar education and favorable project economics to this customer.

The building located at 110 Second Street on Madison's East side was a great candidate for solar. After a solar feasability study was done by SunPeak, the apartment manager knew it was time to go solar.

Second Street Apartments is now self-producing over 80% of their electricity consumed on the building's common meter, rather than purchasing it from the utility.  This assisted them in reducing one of their largest operating costs and is part of their ongoing commitment to increasing the efficiency of their operations.  In addition to the direct savings provided by the panels, the project will serve as a hedge against future increases in electricity prices.

It is projected the company will save over $3,000/year in electricity expenses.  In addition to the direct savings provided by the panels, the project will serve as a hedge against future increases in electricity prices.

Not only is the company excited to market their new green living facility, but the tenants are also proud to show off their sun powered home!

“SunPeak demonstrated clearly the recent affordability of solar (prices came down a lot.) We feel really good that a majority of our electricity is coming from the sun and we are protecting the environment while making a smart business decision at the same time."    Nina Lebwohl, Manager, Second Street Apartments
