Earth Day is six days out, and we’re excited to host an educational event at our brewery to showcase renewable energy. In 2019, we installed a 24.09 kWh solar array that generates about 80% of our annual power need. Utilizing state and federal programs, we were also able to essentially install the array for forty-five cents on the dollar. That means our payoff from our array is now only 8 years. Without the incentives, our array would take 10-12 years for payoff.
Caleb was fortunate enough to join Katie at the Ord Area Chamber of Commerce to record a podcast where I discuss our experience with the array. Have a listen here, and let me know what you think. If we choose to do so as business owners, we can make a difference in this world without infringing on our ability to make profits. Cheers!
