AIA GR's new Sustainability Committe is kicking off its efforts with learning about Brewery Vivant's sustainable energy efforts. Renewable energy has been a focus of Brewery Vivant since they opened in 2010. Currently, the brewery is able to produce 20% of its own energy with a solar panel system that covers the chapel (pub) roof and the adjacent brewery facility. They are also purchasing renewable energy through Consumers Power Green Generation program. Join AIAGR’s newest committee and the ownership of Brewery Viviant to see how they are accomplishing their goals and how the AIA can support our profession and West Michigan in doing the same.
Brewery Vivant presentation starts at 4:00pm. Since it is difficult to see the solar panel system on the roof, this tour will be a presentation on how the owners engaged different organizations to make the system feasible.
Afterwards we invite you to participate in a social hour.
