New Belgium to install huge solar array

New Belgium Brewery is planning its first solar panel at its Fort Collins bottling plant, and the brewer decided to go big. The brewer says it will install a 200-kilowatt solar panel on the roof of its 50,000-square-foot packaging hall. When complete in November, the $1 million solar installation will be one of the biggest in Colorado.

New Belgium says the solar installation will provide up to 13 percent of the brewery’s electricity.
