Solar United Neighbors is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Brews from the Sun Competition. The competition is an opportunity to celebrate the hundreds of craft breweries around the country that are using solar energy to power their beer. Solar supporters and craft beer enthusiasts will have the chance to vote for their favorite brewery that has gone solar.
“Solar energy makes sense, and suds,” said Anya Schoolman, Solar United Neighbors executive director. “This competition is a great way to show how solar is helping to create a more refreshing energy system.”
Throughout the competition, Solar United Neighbors will highlight craft breweries with solar and raise awareness about the many great breweries that have made the choice to go solar. The craft beer industry is an important part of the transition to a clean, local energy system that benefits everyone.
Solar United Neighbors helps people go solar, join together, and fight for their energy rights. It helps thousands of people go solar every year through bulk purchases known as “solar co-ops” as well as through a paid membership program. Members receive on-going support for their solar system, discounts to businesses that have solar, and join a community of solar supporters to ensure their investment in solar is protected.
Solar breweries interested to participate can nominate themselves here. Nominations will close June 8. Voting will be open from June 18 – September 18. Solar United Neighbors will promote the brewery that gets the most votes with an award as well as a full-page ad in BeerAdvocate.
