Pearl Brewery Site To Get Largest Solar Power System In Texas

A warehouse renovation project set for the historic Pearl Brewery site in San Antonio will also be a “learning laboratory” for “green” building and energy efficiency, featuring the largest solar energy installation in Texas, announced CPS Energy and Silver Ventures.

The $1.35 million solar energy joint project will install a 200-kilowatt array of solar panels atop a 67,000 square-foot former warehouse facility being adapted for office, retail and residential use. The project will generate about one-quarter of the building’s total energy needs, and will enable CPS Energy to test the viability of a solar energy application in a large, real-world commercial application.

The project will also feature an educational venue for students and visitors to showcase the workings and benefits of solar power to visitors, including state-of-the art metering devices that monitor energy use and display real-time information about the amount of solar energy being generated.

Known as the Full Goods Building, the Pearl Brewery Project will be one of the first LEED certified buildings in San Antonio.
