The systems will be installed in a solar-plus-storage microgrid at three wineries in California’s Mendocino County, namely Roederer Estate, Scharffenberger Cellars and Domaine Anderson. The microgrid is expected to be operational in late 2023
Called Vanderbilt I Solar Farm, the facility has been developed by Silicon Ranch in partnership with Vanderbilt University, Nashville Electric Service (NES) and Tennessee Valley Authority. Output will offset the school's energy use
The PV system will be owned and maintained by Green Bank in partnership with Inclusive Prosperity Capital (IPC), a non-profit investment fund dedicated to financing clean energy projects that benefit traditionally underserved markets and projects
This move is set to save Sportika more than $1.3 million in electricity costs and avoid over 3,580 metric tons of CO2 emissions over the system’s lifetime. The project was made possible through New Jersey’s Solar Transition Incentive Program
