ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Anheuser-Busch has wrapped up work on a large solar energy project that will help power a brewery in central New York state.

The 2.76-megawatt solar farm will produce enough energy to brew more than 3 million cases of beer.

St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch, part of Belgium-based AB Inbev, will be the sole recipient of the power generated at the facility, which is 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the company’s brewery in Baldwinsville, near Syracuse.New York state kicked in $1.1 million in incentives to support the project.

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul cut the ribbon on the new solar farm Wednesday. She says the project will reduce carbon emissions while creating good jobs and boosting the regional economy.
