Anheuser-Busch Covers 65,000 Sq Ft Rooftop with Solar

Anheuser-Busch uses an array of 3,000 photovoltaic solar panels that covers 65,000 square feet of their plant's rooftop to produce electricity for making their famous beer products:

Peter Kraemer, vice president of Supply, Anheuser-Busch. “When combined with the solar array at our Fairfield, Calif. brewery, we are now one of the largest users of solar power in the U.S. brewing industry.”

Orion Energy Systems designed, installed and will operate, monitor and maintain the array.

“New Jersey is quickly becoming the No. 2 producer of solar energy in the country and Anheuser-Busch is proud to be among the leaders in our state in use of this technology,” said Kristopher Scholl, general manager, Anheuser-Busch Newark brewery.
