Anheuser-Busch has gone SOLAR



In respect for Memorial Day, we thought today’s blog subject would be very appropriate. Anheuser-Busch has gone SOLAR! Yes that is right folks, now while you are enjoying a crisp beverage over the holiday weekend, you can smile because you know you are indirectly saving the planet with every sip.

On May 19th, Anheuser-Busch breweries announced the company plans on Solar Panelsinstalling a 3,000-panel solar energy system on top of the Newark, New Jersey brewing facility. The solar array is projected to produce 525,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, or 5% of the brewery’s energy needs. Budweiser’s parent company is following suite with the rest of industry. Recently Belgium Brewing Co., based in Fort Collins, announce their plans to install the largest privately owned, on-site, solar energy system in Colorado.

“Our dream is to be the ‘Best Beer Company in a Better World,’ which comes to life through our environmental efforts, promotion of responsible drinking and investments in our communities. Whether it’s a new solar panel array or our employees’ passionate support of World Environment Day in June, we are committed to making a difference and improving the world around us.” – Kristopher Scholl, the General Manager of Anheuser-Busch’s Newark Brewery
