San Antonio Winery has completed a solar project that will supply energy to its new world-class production facility and hospitality center in Paso Robles, California.
The 517kW rooftop system was designed and built by REC Solar. It generates 827,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, enough to power 60 homes for a year.
"This year Riboli Family Wine Estates is celebrating our 100th year producing wine. The solar system and other sustainability measures at our newest facility in Paso Robles are perfect examples of the continued innovation that has helped make our business successful," said fourth-generation family winemaker Anthony Riboli.
"We are blessed to work in a beautiful area with a climate that provides us with plenty of sunshine. Using that sun to generate our own renewable power on our rooftop is a huge win. It empowers us to minimize our impact on the environment, create more predictable costs and produce incredible wine in our sustainable, modern facility," said Riboli.
"The entire Paso Robles facility is an incredible showcase for San Antonio Winery's investment in the environment, the community and great wine," said Alan Russo, senior vice president of sales and marketing at REC Solar. "We are proud to have partnered with them on this solar energy initiative."
