100% Renewable Electricity Commitment by 2030

CUB plans to achieve its goal to be powered by 100% renewable electricity in 2020.

Power Purchase Agreement

CUB has signed a 12 year contract to secure electricity from the Karadoc solar farm in Mildura, Victoria. The solar farm, which at 664 acres is one of the largest in Victoria, provides 74,000 MWh per year of renewable energy. The farm began producing in December 2018. The PPA covers the majority of CUB’s electricity needs with the remainder being supplemented by on site solar being installed at CUB breweries in 2020.

On-site Solar

Solar panels were being installed at the CUB breweries in Yatala (QLD) and Abbotsford (VIC) in early 2020. The panels will supply up to 10% of CUB’s electricity needs, with the remainder covered by their PPA.
