Wines U.S. has announced its plan to power its Gonzales Winery in
Monterey County, California with the help of a 1.2MW solar power
installation. The project will see the installation of 6,358 Mitsubishi
Electric 185W solar panels on approximately 170,000 square feet of the
winery’s warehouse roof.
The project is being financed and built by Pacific Power Management and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The installation is projected to provide around 60 percent of the total energy requirement of the winery.
