It makes sense for wineries to consider a solar energy system to power their wineries. Most wineries have the two requirements needed for this system. They have plenty of sunshine and enough surface area to set up the number of panels needed. When you are in the valley, you are likely to see wineries with solar panels mounted on roofs, on the ground, and even a few in irrigation ponds on pontoons.

With government incentives, why wouldn’t a winery go solar? As one vintner boasted to us, “I love seeing that PG&E meter running in the opposite direction.”

  1. Hi. That website iz the best, and I’ve been looking for this web-site for a very long time and I’m so grateful I eventually found it.

    I am 21 years of age and starting my masters at Brown.

    I’m the kind of guy who enjoys to seek fresh stuff. Currently I’m constructing my own pv panels. I am managing it all by myself without the help of my staff. I am utilizing the internet as the only way to acheive that. I encountered a truly amazing site that explains how to contruct solar panels and wind generators. The web site explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

    I’m not sure about how correct the info given there is. If some guys over here who had xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the site it would be awesome and I would highly treasure it, cause I really lav building photovoltaic panels.
