Molson Coors to brew all products in the UK with green energy
Molson Coors Beverage Company has signed a ten-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with RWE, which will see all of its UK operations powered by renewable electricity. With the deal, Molson Coors claims it has become the first major UK brewer to produce all of its beers and ciders using 100% green electricity. As part of the PPA, 22 turbines at the Tween Bank wind farm in Yorkshire will supply renewable electricity to all of Molson Coors’ UK operations. This includes the breweries at Burton, Tadcaster and Sharps in Cornwall, as well as the Aspall Cyder House in Suffolk, all offices, the national distribution centre and the national call centre in Cardiff. Under the terms of the ten-year agreement, RWE will deliver around 75 gigawatt hours of green electricity annually. In an average year, Molson Coors uses the same amount of electricity as around 25,000 households.
