Solar Powered

Split Rock Distilling is committed to doing things the right way. From sourcing local, wholesome organic ingredients to only selling our own handcrafted spirits, we take every chance to give back to the community that has supported us since the beginning. We bottle our authentic spirits in recycled bottles with post-consumer waste paper labels, and since April of 2018 we have stepped up our sustainable practices by offsetting a portion of our electrical usage with solar panels! Joining forces with Liberty, ME-based ReVision Energy set us up with a grid-tied system that lets us not only harvest solar electricity, but allows us to contribute our extra power back to our community, while strengthening Midcoast Maine’s power grid. 
The thirty-six solar panels on our roof in Newcastle, Maine produces over 11,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year, and offsets 9987 lbs of carbon. We further cut back on carbon emissions with an electric vehicle charger on-site! To see what our distillery’s system is producing, both today and across its lifetime, click here.
