ANHEUSER-Busch (AB) has erected a 65 000 squ.ft. solar array on the roof of its New Jersey brewery which will cover nearly 5% of its electricity demand. The solar panels will produce more than 525 000 kilowatt hours annually, which is enough to power 62 average New Jersey homes for a year, AB said."This solar panel installation is just one more example of Anheuser-Busch's continued commitment to improving our environmental performance through alternative energy sources at our facilities across the country," said Peter Kraemer, vice president of supply at AB. "When combined with the solar array at our Fairfield, California brewery, we are now one of the largest users of solar power in the US brewing industry."
