Sun shines on New Belgium Brewing Company

The competition to be craft beer’s most environmentally conscious brewery is always a hot topic of discussion, and Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing Company announced a new initiative that could help its case reach a boiling point.

The brewery — makers of Fat Tire Amber Ale — will begin installing the state’s largest privately owned solar array tomorrow. Once the structure is finished, it will produce 16 percent of New Belgium’s peak electrical load and three percent of the company’s total electrical energy use.

“We’re excited to include a fairly large solar PV installation as part of our total load reduction project portfolio,” New Belgium sustainability director Jennifer Orgolini said in a statement. “It nicely compliments our current on-site generation which uses methane from our process water treatment plant, and the new generation capacity, thermal storage and demand response technologies we’ll also be adding for peak reduction. The five projects we’re doing to reduce peak will cost over $3 million, but the DOE grant and partner contributions allow us to help further research required to make distributed generation and smart grids a reality for the whole country.”

Now hat’s hot stuff.
