Golden Road Brewing is saving electricity and going green with rooftop and carport solar at their Anaheim Brewery location. California craft brewers are blazing trail for other brewers to think renewable energies when it comes to creating the beers they love.
Craft Beer production grew 3.9% in 2018. That’s strong growth considering Overall Beer grew -0.8% in the same time frame. With increased production in this sector comes increased operating costs. California craft brewers consume a lot of electricity. Few brewers know this better than Golden Road Brewing.
California’s electricity rates average over 6% growth per year. Couple that with increasing usage, Golden Road Brewing was facing a critical decision. They had to regain control of their electricity bill. Installing commercial grade solar was the solution. Golden Road worked with Revel Energy to install rooftop and carport commercial grade solar at its Anaheim location. “We didn’t know all the financial benefits or how to model it,” explains Brandon Smith of Golden Road Brewing. Revel Energy helped Golden Road through the whole process from customizing a system, to installation and maintenance.
