Stellar Energy, a leading engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firm, announced it has completed a 671 Kilowatt (kW) solar project for Rombauer Vineyards in St. Helena, CA. The solar energy system consists of two large roof-mounted photovoltaic arrays and features 2,856 solar modules and 3 Satcon inverters, which provide the electricity to power their wine production facility and a large temperature controlled warehouse.

The solar power generated is expected to save the winery over $185,000 in electricity costs each year. In addition, Stellar Energy helped Rombauer Vineyards take advantage of Section 1603 of the 2009 ARRA bill, the federal grant in lieu of tax credit, which reimbursed 30 percent of the project's cost, as well as accelerated depreciation of the system and utility rebates.
To maintain the winery's attractive appearance, electrical sub panels and inverters needed to be installed out of plain sight. The solar modules were safely installed on a steep metal roof during the hot summer months. Stellar Energy's crews finished the project ahead of schedule, enabling Rombauer to begin using the new solar energy for the grape harvest and crush.
"We were delighted to help Rombauer make the transition to harnessing solar energy." said Matt Lugar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Stellar Energy. "This project is another great example of our legacy of helping wineries save energy and money with solar power."
