SolarCity and MillerCoors announced the completion of what may be the largest solar installation on a US brewery to date. The 3.2 megawatt array consists of more than 10,000 solar panels installed across ten acres of the brewery’s grounds in Irwindale, northeast of downtown Los Angeles, California (US). The solar system is expected to produce enough energy to brew more than 7 million cases of beer annually.

The new project allows MillerCoors to significantly increase the brewery’s energy independence and will offer impactful environmental benefits to the San Gabriel Valley region and the residents of Los Angeles County. The system will prevent more than 144 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere over its lifetime – the equivalent of taking over 12,000 cars off the road or planting more than 6.2 million trees.
