We've Gone Solar!
THE GOOSE IS SUNNY SIDE UP!
In 2011, we added solar panels to our roof and became the very first solar powered brewery in NH! As a solar hot water brewery, we have cut our fuel usage in half!
In addition, we completed a solar photovoltaic ("PV") array which powers 30% of our electricity usage. Friday, November 16th, 2012 marked the 1 year anniversary of our Solar Array installation. In it's first year of operation, our system produced 60 MWh of energy! That's enough energy to power 4 stadiums and has offset our carbon footprint by 42 tons - comparable to four acres of trees!
During the summer of 2012, we replaced our propane-fired boiler with a MESys AutoPellet fully-automatic wood pellet boiler. The boiler will displace approximately 6,450 gallons of propane each year.
OUR COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS
We ReUse, Recycle & Buy Local!
We value our community and do our best to give back! We try to do this in many ways, by recycling and respecting our environment, buying locally and supporting local vendors, as well as participating in local events and activities.
