In keeping with its sustainability programme, SATO is committed to improving the energy efficiency of its buildings and also increasing local renewable energy production. By early September, SATO will have installed 15 solar power systems at its rental home buildings across the Helsinki region as well as in Tampere and Turku.

SATO has agreed the delivery of the new solar power systems with the company Kerabit Aurinkosähkö. Solar power systems will be installed in a total of 15 rental home properties located across the Helsinki region as well as in Tampere and Turku.

Locally produced solar power is used as real estate electricity for purposes such as ventilation and lighting in the common areas.

The solar power system installations will start in May and be completed by early September 2023.

Solar power systems are one way that we pursue this aim,” says Jari Kanervo, Technical Director at SATO.
