In celebration of the Summer Solstice, the Terlato family announces that all of their wineries will be powered with solar energy. Starting with Chimney Rock Winery, Napa, CA), which is now completely solar-powered, the Terlatos will continue to embrace solar energy at their other family-owned wineries including Rutherford Hill and Sanford. A commitment to instituting sustainable business practices for the sake of present and future generations is the driving force behind expanding their eco-friendly initiatives.
Terlato called upon the services of Sunlight Electric to design the system at Chimney Rock and Shamrock Renewable Energy Services to manage the installation, which is projected to produce 342,491 kilowatt-hours in the first year. The solar power system will eliminate the emission of 342,491 pounds of CO2 annually based on CA average of 1 lb CO2 per kWh generated by the state’s utilities. This is the equivalent of taking 22 cars off the road or the power required annually by 32 average US households.
