Van Dieman moves to solar energy

Van Dieman Brewing is brewing sustainable beer made with green energy. The brewery last week installed & turned on a 48-kilowatt solar array – one of only a handful of Australian craft breweries to invest in the technology – at their White Hills farm in northern Tasmania. The 300 solar panels should generate more than 33 MWh of clean electricity every year. Founder and Head Brewer Will Tatchell says “on-site generation should see us satisfy up to 80% of the brewery’s total electric demand annually”, the system will successfully produce a surplus of energy during the summer months allowing them to also to feed back into the grid.
