Novato and Sonoma based SolarCraft announced the completion of a 649 kW solar power system at Hess Collection Winery providing nearly 100% of the electrical needs for its Napa, CA production facility. Designed and built by SolarCraft, the new system will reduce Hess’s utility costs by thousands every year, while reducing the load on the local utility grid.

Novato, CA, May 08, 2014 --(PR.com)-- The solar photovoltaic system is roof-mounted, spanning 44,555 square feet. The system consists of 2,200 Hanwha Solar 295-watt solar panels, powering their offices and production facilities with clean, renewable energy.

Utilizing solar power is part of Hess Collection Winery’s commitment to environmentally conscious and sustainable business practices. By going solar, they will reduce their carbon footprint while saving millions in utility costs in the years to come.

The system’s solar electric panels are expected to generate approximately 945,450 kilowatt hours of energy annually, providing 100% of the winery’s annual energy consumption. The new solar energy system enables Hess to generate enough electricity each day to power 148 average homes. It will spare the air nearly 272 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually. Over the next 30 years, the air pollution saved will be equivalent to eliminating almost 16 million miles of driving.
