Green Energy Brewery - Carbon Friendly

The Cerddin Brewery is powered by green energy, the use of solar energy is clean and sustainable which helps us protect the environment. Unlike traditional sources of electricity it does not release harmful pollutants such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, mercury or sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere.

We have 18 photovoltaic (PV) panels on our roof, which produces energy for our brewery. The panels were installed by Llynfi Valley company Free Green Energy Wales, which is run by electrician Chris Stephens and plumber Julian Thomas of Maesteg. Chris said "The panels will produce 3400kWh of energy per year and will help to reduce the brewery's carbon footprint".

The Feed In Tariff scheme was introduced by the Government as part of the 2009 Energy Act. It's aim is to increase the level of renewable energy in the UK towards the EU's legally binding target of 15% of total energy coming from renewable energy by 2020. As part the Clean Energy Cashback scheme, householders are given financial incentive to encourage them to generate their own electricity from renewable or low carbon sources as solar electricity panels, wind turbines or hydro power.

"This is a totally new idea and we are the only solar powered brewery in the area" Dai Morgan - Pub Landlord
