Utah Brewery Chooses 100 Percent Wind Power,Environmental News Network
A small Salt Lake City brewery has announced it will start using energy generated from a wind farm to power its company, reports theEnvironmental News Network. The Uinta Brewing Company has been using wind power from a Wyoming farm since the beginning of December, making it the first company in the state to run on pollution-free power from Utah Power's Blue Sky Wind Power Program. The Blue Sky Program, launched in 2000, allows customers to choose how their energy is produced by purchasing blocks of renewable energy. Uinta owner Will Hamill says he thought using wind power would be good for the company, since they already donate to community organizations and recycle as much as they can. 'Running our new brewery and pub on 100 percent wind-generated electricity is the next logical step,' he says.
