Steelville Telephone Exchange Case Study

Client background

Steelville Telephone Exchange provides telecommunications services for customers in the Viburnum, Cherryville/Davisville, Steelville, and Huzzah areas. The company prides itself on keeping up with modern technology trends and has adhered to this philosophy by, for example, frequently updating their fiber optic cables to provide the best telecommunications services to their customers.

In line with this philosophy, Steelville worked with EnergyLink to integrate rooftop and ground mount solar arrays to power each of their buildings (Headquarters, Tower location, Cuba location, Viburnum location, Help Desk / Downtown Steelville location). A roof replacement was done on their Headquarters before the solar array was installed there, and an LED lighting retrofit was also installed at the Headquarters for added energy efficiency.
