Anheuser-Busch says it is installing a second wind turbine at its Fairfield brewery in northern California.

According to the company, the 1.6 MW machine will boost the facility's renewable energy generation up to 4.1 MW - covering 30% of the brewery's electricity needs. The first turbine was constructed in 2011, and the new machine is slated to be operational in October. Anheuser-Busch notes that the brewery is also home to seven acres of solar power arrays and a bio-energy recovery system, as well as utilizes water conservation and recycling efforts.

Tony Sanfillipo, general manager of the Fairfield brewery, says, "Increasing energy efficiency through wind reflects our commitment to reducing environmental impact while producing the best beers in the world."
