With the completion of the 10kW solar system at Gemtree’s Cellar Door, a 99kW system was next in line for their Kangarilla Road vineyard.
The 400 panel solar system will save the winery 151,757Kw per year in electricity consumption and over 110 tonnes of green house emissions. This is equivalent to 22 cars off the road or planting 11,000 trees each year.
Gemtree is passionate about sound environmental practices, sustainable agriculture and innovation, both in the vineyards and in the winery. Solar was always part of their sustainability plan.
Class A Energy Solutions were able to secure an AusIndustry clean technology food & foundries investment grant for Gemtree thereby offering even a greater return on investment from day one.
