Since our founding, Booth & Associates has been known industry-wide as a top firm in traditional utilities engineering.

We have integrated alternate resource specialists in Solar, Biomass, Wind Energy, and Geothermal into an area of Booth expertise. 

As the role of renewable energy increases, innovations focused on renewable energy technologies have significant future potential. The role of renewable energy is expected to increase significantly, with greater contributions to power generation. Correspondingly, our expertise in alternative energy sources has grown, especially into the areas of solar farms and biomass technologies.



Booth & Associates offers an extensive list of Structural Engineering services. Our Booth team can fully calculate how different materials will perform under stresses such as compression, tension, bending, and twisting, as well as under various environmental conditions in order to predict how these materials will perform over time.



Booth’s Substation and Relaying Division capabilities span all aspects of design and installation assistance, including structural, electrical, civil, relay and control systems to full procurement and contract administration.

Booth has been actively involved in the design, procurement and construction administration, as well as the testing and energization of station facilities since we opened our doors in 1960. We are proud to still have municipal electric systems, rural electric cooperatives and investor-owned utilities among our valued clients.

Our designs include: industrial service substations, distribution substations, generation substations, and transmission step-down and switching stations. We assess each project to determine the requirements, and then dedicate the necessary resources and expertise to meet project goals.
