Butko engineering’s heavy daytime energy consumption warranted the company exploring the option of solar power. Through extensive analysis, Butko Engineering decided to install a 100kw system, with panels facing both North East and North West in an attempt to spread the solar production out from early in the morning, to late into the evening to offset the maximum amount of energy consumption throughout the course of the sunlight hours.

Butko Engineering have seen substantial declines in overall energy consumption, which ultimately improves the overall bottom line, but also drastically reduces the company’s carbon footprint.
