If you think pouring money into a technology that is no where near as effecient as many other conventional power forms, so be it.

It's clean energy... we'll put the coal plant next to your house.

In the long run it does save money, and I'm sure a brewery the size of SN ran a few numbers before doing this.

I received a bid for my house that adding solar panels would pay for itself in 8 years. After 8 years, my electric bill would be about $20 a month. How is that inefficient?

For every step forward there is always going to be someone in who will want you to take two steps back. Don't listen and you will succeed in life.

Solar energy can be stored in battery banks (expensive) or sold back to the electric company for later use (very cheap). It is not only useful during the day. But you're probably joking anyway, I guess.

Pretty cool move on SN's part. I just bought a sixer of their Summerfest to drink while brewing today. I'm doing my part to save the environment!
