Cogenra Solar and SunWater Solar have installed the largest roof-top PV system in the US on the roof of Kendall-Jackson’s Kittyhawk winery in Windsor, California. The 241kW installation uses 96 solar modules in a hybrid thermal and PV system.
“The wine industry, and especially Kendall-Jackson, have been leaders in the sustainability movement,” said Gilad Almogy, CEO of Cogenra Solar. “Solar cogeneration is quickly becoming one of the industry’s most effective tools to maximize the impact of solar energy production to meet both electricity and hot water needs. We commend Kendall-Jackson for their sustainability leadership and look forward to deploying future projects.”
“This partnership between two great California companies is proof that business can boost the bottom line while helping the environment,” US congressman Mike Thompson commented. “Innovative new energy technologies, like Cogenra’s and smart, progressive businesses, like Kendall-Jackson, will drive job creation in the years ahead.”
