Why solar?

Bear Republic Brewing Company began to take steps to reduce its environmental impact – installing wastewater treatment and heat capture technologies during the production process – and solar energy seemed like a strong way to continue its sustainability push. Bear Republic is also a champion for American business, and its leadership wanted to ensure that the components used in its solar array were manufactured domestically. 

Why Enphase?

Bear Republic favored Enphase microinverters because they were not only manufactured nearby in Milpitas, California, but they also maximize energy production and system reliability. In particular, if a part of the system suffers a drop in production, microinverters ensure that the rest of the system is not affected.
