Dartmoor Brewery goes solar, in a next step towards carbon-neutral brewing

Wednesday, 8 May, 2024

Taste of the West member and leading South West producer of traditional ales, Dartmoor Brewery, has taken its next step towards carbon neutral brewing, with a solar energy installation at its Devon brewery premises.
As England’s highest brewery, in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, the Princetown-based operation produces a full range of traditional beers including the famous and original Jail Ale.
The brewery commissioned leading south west renewable energy specialists Clean Earth Energy for the new solar PV installation, which delivers up to 100 kilowatts of clean energy – amounting to nearly 50% of the brewery’s electricity requirement.                          
Brewery MD Ian Cobham commented: “Operating here in the heart of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, we are acutely aware of our responsibility for keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum. Our new solar installation is an important next step in our path towards carbon neutrality, and harnessing clean solar energy using the latest PV technology will dramatically reduce our use of electricity from the grid.”
