Vintage Wine Estates produces a collection of wines at their facilities in Northern California. With 20+ wineries to serve in the Napa Valley area, energy use was a significant operating expense.
Systems were specifically designed to offset some of Vintage Wines’ highest time of use (TOU) rates and demand charges, making solar a great solution to control their utility costs. A 762kW ground mounted system was installed at their bottling facility in Hopland, and a 182kW rooftop system in Santa Rosa.
