The brewery opened in May 2018 and operates on a seven-barrel electric system, which is now powered in part by solar panels. The 63 SunPower solar panels are visible from Mad Mole’s taproom where there are 12 beers on draft.
The partners wanted solar to help power their operations using the suns energy and they saw immediate savings in their electric bill.
“The Mad Mole team was awesome to work with. I am grateful we got to help them carry out their vision of beer brewed by the sun,” stated Cape Fear Solar Systems Senior Project Manager, Robert Parker who went on to say, “The beer at Mad Mole is outstanding and you can feel good about drinking it. I look forward to spending time there with my friends and family.”
