Burton Lumber Installs Four Acres of Solar Panels
By Rachel Madison
Salt Lake City – BURTON LUMBER finished the installation of the largest Utah-based, privately owned, roof-mounted solar project in the state in November. The company teamed up with Salt Lake City-based HUNT ELECTRIC to design and install the solar panels. The modules will generate 642.2 kilowatts of electricity, which will take care of approximately 74 percent of Burton Lumber’s electricity bill.
The installation includes 2,676 solar modules on the 193,484-square-foot roof, which is the equivalent of more than four acres of solar panels.
“I’m grateful there are companies like Burton Lumber who are willing to lead out and set an example for the rest of the state,” says Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox. “This project is a showcase. We will be touting this everywhere we go. We’re going to be spreading the message about what Burton Lumber and Hunt Electric are doing to help Utah in a new and exciting way.”
