After some delay, deliberation and details, on Monday, we completed the installation of some solar panels on top of our winery. This has been in the works for some time, but more pressing now as we look to expand our shed use and will be increasing our power usage once we have our new brewery. It was also a good chance for me to have a go flying The President’s drone, so I took a few snaps.

While we were looking to go bigger, the maximum and what we settled on was a 5KW system Рwhich once all twenty panels were installed looks big enough. Each panel is tilted to maximise sun exposure and come with individual optimisers so that the system keeps running, even if some panels are shaded. Now we just need some work from the power company so we can collect tariffs and from our electrician so that our entire property benefits from the sun, not just the winery.
