NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Gas Technology Institute (GTI), SAB Miller, and H2Go propose to the California Energy Commission (CEC) a pilot solar thermal installation utilizing medium temperature non-tracking solar collectors at the SAB Miller brewing facility in Irwindale, CA. The solar thermal installation will drive key industrial process heat applications at the facility - displacing natural gas and electricity use. It is anticipated that the integrated solar thermal application(s) will be replicable in other plants and similar settings across California and elsewhere, improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reducing reliance on fossil fuels, and benefiting California rate payers.
