Novato and Sonoma based SolarCraft announced the completion of a 190 kW solar electric panel system at Robert Young Estate Vineyards & Winery in Geyserville, CA. This historic Alexander Valley property is now powered by renewable, clean energy while enjoying lower utility costs.
Now, with a 190 kW solar power system, electrical use on all contiguous parcels of the 450-acre estate will be offset. In other words, with virtual net metering, most energy usage by Robert Young Estate winery, vineyards, residences, and other buildings will be offset by solar energy. This solar power system will immensely reduce the carbon footprint on the estate and save millions of dollars over many years of operation.
Jim Young, CEO of Robert Young Estate Vineyards & Winery said “This solar array system is an important part of our continued commitment to farm and produce wines sustainably for generations to come.”
The solar photovoltaic system is ground mounted on a small hillside at the west end of the vineyards and consists of 582 SunPower high-efficiency 327-watt solar panels. The system’s solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity and is expected to generate approximately 315,207 kilowatt hours of emissions-free electricity each year, eliminating most of their electrical costs.
