2019 Brews from the Sun Competitor

Highland Brewing Company

Our story

Brewing beer requires the use of significant amounts of utilities. Part of our company culture is to reduce our carbon footprint in every way possible, and by installing a solar array we were able to take a huge step towards that end. Federal and North Carolina tax incentives made it possible for the addition of solar panels to work within our business model.

What benefits have we enjoyed since going solar?

  • Reduction in electricity expenses and carbon footprint
  • Among many other things, we run our tenant space, event space, packaging hall, and air compressors with solar power with the excess going onto the grid
  • Guest appreciation of our attempts to reduce dependence on fossil fuel
  • Low maintenance power production
  • High-quality components that have provided low maintenance power production
  • Great viewing of the array from our rooftop bar
