BayWa r.e. has signed a supply agreement for solar power with the Carlton & United Breweries. This electricity will be produced in the 112 MW PV plant Mildura, which is currently under construction.

Carlton & United Breweries (CUB), one of Australia's leading brewing companies, aims for fully covering its electrical needs with renewable energy. In order to come closer to this goal, the company will receive around 74 GWh of PV power per year from the Mildura solar power plant. The PV plant in the state of Victoria is currently still under construction. Responsible for the construction works is Beon Energy Solutions. The contractee is the German BayWa r.e. GmbH.

Buying green energy from BayWa r.e. nevertheless is just the first step for CUB. There are already plans to install solar panels on top of every production site.

CUB is already serious about sustainability. Its Yatala brewery is a world leader in water efficiency.

Since entering the market BayWa r.e. is active in Australia both as a project developer for solar and wind projects and as a wholesaler of solar systems.
