Over 50% on-site renewable electricity
Firestone Walker’s commitment to clean, renewable energy begins with our on-site solar array, ensuring that all of the beers are now brewed using California sunshine. In 2021, they commissioned a 2.3 MWp solar tracker installation, which already provides around 50% of the plant’s energy consumption, reducing its scope 2 carbon emissions by 850 tons of CO2 annually. Together with the electricity generated from the biogas-fired small cogeneration unit, this means that over 50% of our electricity production is self-generated and renewable. The solar array installation is currently being expanded, allowing the site to be 100% renewably powered by 2024.
