Solar

Solar
Villiera Wines installed solar panels on the roofs of three of their buildings in 2010.

This was a substantial investment but the electricity they currently supply to the farm, has enabled us to recover the cost of the initial 950 m2 installation. In 2017 additional solar panels were added to increase the installation to a total of 1155 m2. We are currently producing a large portion of our own energy requirements from a completely sustainable source. In 2022 we will be looking at enlarging our solar production again. Surplus power will be fed into the National Grid giving Villiera the option of getting the power back when we have shortfalls in production.

In addition, the large storeroom and cellar receives its lighting requirements through solar domes. These domes were installed to further reduce our reliance on carbon-based energy production.
