Bay Area Beverage Company is committed to regularly exploring options to improve our business practices in order to both minimize our impact on the environment and maximize returns from our investments.
On December 22, 2008 Bay Area Beverage Company flipped the switch on a 500 kW solar power system, becoming the nation's first 100% solar powered beer and beverage distributor. The system is large enough to power 85 homes.
Perched atop our company's casino facilities are 2,756 solar panels that generate 500kW of renewable electricity. The solar power system reduces Bay Area Beverage’s carbon footprint by more than 905,924 pounds of CO2 per year, equivalent to the carbon captured annually by nearly 123 acres of forest.
