Napa Valley Implements Solar

Grape Growers Go Solar


Solar power is becoming ever more far reaching.  In fact, it is reaching into Napa Valley and into the wine producing industry.  One farm in California has installed nearly 2,000 solar panels on a 1.1 acre area.  They are also installing another 2,300 panels, including 1,000 panels on a floating system in an irrigation pond that they have dubbed "floatovoltaics". All in all, the panels will produce 770 KW  at peak times.

California is a forward thinking state and the wine producers want to do all they can to keep the climate where it is.  If the climate changes, the grapes and wine change, so "green" solutions are helping all of us.
