Anheuser-Busch is making good on its pledge to be a more renewable brewer.
The company said it is partnering with San Francisco-based solar developer Recurrent Energy.
The new solar facility is the size of 1,500 football fields and will produce 650 gigawatt hours of energy each year.
Anheuser-Busch President and CEO Michel Doukeris wouldn’t give financial details of the agreement, but says it’s a smart investment.
“We do this not because of the cost, but because of a strong belief that we have that it’s good for business, it’s good for society and we all need to play an important role in the environment,” Doukeris told The Associated Press.
