Firestone Walker Brewing Company, looking to better empower their rapid growth, lower and secure their energy bills, as well as become more sustainable, sought a proven energy solution they could rely upon for the next 25+ years.
By farming the sun, Firestone is able to leverage their property adjacent to the brewery, empowering them to construct a 2.1MW single axis sun tracking solar array on less than 10 acres of land. Using a REC Solar power purchasing agreement (PPA), Firestone is able to accomplish all of this without any capital outlay.
