Solar Provides 15 Percent Of Power Needs

A lot of people are turning to solar as a safe reliable source of electricity. And that also includes companies just like us.

It makes financial sense, of course, or smart business leaders wouldn’t do it. But it also is an important way of living a company’s values of sustainability and commitment to community.

That’s just what prompted National Life Group to take a hard look at our electricity use and take a big step toward energy independence at our Vermont headquarters.

National Life commissioned a 500-kilowatt solar array on our campus this fall. Combined with an existing 73-kilowatt project on the roof of the company’s headquarters building, 15 percent of the power used by National Life is generated by solar.

This project was one of many sustainability initiatives that the company has undertaken in recent years. Read about how we stack up. And you might enjoy this video about the new solar project.
