According to Renewable Energy Access, an online newsletter focusing on renewable energy, Sierra Nevada Brewing “has commissioned the first phase of what will be one of the country’s largest private solar installations. This commissioning comes on the heels of the installation of four 250-kilowatt co-generation fuel cell power units, also one of the largest fuel cell installations in the United States.”
They already produce some of their own energy with their 1-MW fuel cell plant. With the addition of this new project, which should be completed some time later this year, they will be close to owner Ken Grossman’s stated “goal of providing 100% of our energy needs with clean on-site alternative energy generation.”
I think thats great just as long as it doesn’t increase the price of my SNPA. Going green is great, but I wont purchase a 6-pack of Pale Ale if SN passes the cost of this project down to the consumer. Just telling the truth.
