Raymond Vineyards Fully Powered with Metal Rooftop Solar System

In the heart of America’s wine region, the Raymonds built their family winery from the ground up, leveraging 35+ years of experience in the winemaking industry. Over 45 years later, the Raymond Vineyards are getting a little extra boost from the sun.

Raymond Vineyards is now the largest 100 percent solar-powered winery in Napa, California, according to utility provider Blue Sky Utility, thanks to a mixed 750kW solar PV system. The solar energy installation features over 50,000 sq ft of solar modules mounted by the RBI Solar MS and VS solutions on the winery’s roofs. A 17,000 sq ft solar canopy also helps reduce the winery’s energy consumption by providing a shaded area that can be utilized during the harvest and for storage of the fermentation tanks. Blue Sky Utility, along with contractor BPI, are responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of the PV systems.

The 3,123 Talesun 240 watt solar modules are expected to produce over 1.3 million kWh of energy each year, offsetting approximately 990 tons of harmful carbon emissions. Read the rest of this entry »
