Another Renewable Energy Project Powered by BPi
St. Helena, CA, May 23, 2013: Raymond Vineyards is excited to announce a significant milestone in its ongoing commitment to sustainability with the implementation of a 750 kW rooftop solar system. BPi enabled Raymond Vineyards to offset energy usage by 100% and produce over 1,171,519 kWh per year. Since joining the Boisset Collection in 2009, Raymond Vineyards has become one of Napa Valley’s leading fine wine producers and the largest certified organic and certified Biodynamic estate that has converted 100% to renewable energy. This installation has been operational since May 23, 2013, and plays a pivotal role in Raymond Vineyard’s goal to harvest and produce wine that is 100% powered by renewable energy.
“BPi has dramatically cut utility costs at several of our wineries.” Said Lisa Heisinger CEO of the Boisett Collection, “We are so excited to be able to help the environment with this energy-efficient solution.”
This solar array seamlessly integrates into the rooftop of their winemaking facility. BPi and it’s partners installed a system for each unique roof type. The rooftop solar system was selected because the buildings on the property varied from asphalt shingle roofed tasting rooms to metal roofed production/bottling facilities. Over 50,000 square feet of roof space was converted into solar energy.
Features and benefits of this PV System include:
Commission Date: May 23, 2013
- Energy System: Rooftop Solar
- System Size: 750 kW (DC)
- Energy Production: 1,171,519 kWh/Year
- Energy Offset: 100%
- Solar Modules: 3,123 Panels
The system was substantially completed, the grid interconnected, and producing energy on May 23, 2013.
