Sun is the lifeblood for grapes just as solar power should be the lifeblood for wine producers and wineries. In California, the capacity of new solar systems range from 2 kilowatts (kW) to well over 1 megawatt (MW). The technology itself is reliable for extended periods of time as solar product warranties last 20 to 25 years, while the life of service is 40 to 50 years with minor upgrades and maintenance.
Wineries can earn a 20% return on their investment in solar panels alone. Solar power improves the economics of photovoltaics, thereby shrinking your energy dependency annually with battery storage taking on more of the energy load which is incentivized by the utility with changing rate plans (B-rate plans).
We offer several E2 PowerPad designs integrated to our fleet vehicles from our partners that include commercial or E2 backed leasing and finance options for specific farm business uses.
