It’s been a long time coming, but we now have our own solar array! It’s something we’ve been meaning to do for years as the benefits are obvious – we were just waiting for the technology to improve, and for some funding to become available.
Our winery & warehouse roofs now power our entire site; with some to spare! Next we’d like to invest in some batteries to remove our need for mains electricity altogether, but as above, we’re just waiting for the right moment.
Being more sustainable benefits everyone, and everything. In one week, we have reduced our co2 footprint by 120kg (saving 100kg of coal), and also reduced our utility bill by a sizeable amount.
This is just one part of our vision to become as sustainable as we can in the future.
