Cogenra Solar, a provider of distributed solar cogeneration systems, today announced the nation's largest rooftop solar cogeneration system to date at Kendall-Jackson's Kittyhawk winery in Windsor, California. Expanding on Kendall-Jackson's existing energy and water conservation projects, the 96-module, 241kW hybrid solar photovoltaic (PV) and thermal array is expected to save approximately $30,000 in annual energy costs.
"Our founder Jess Jackson was a trailblazer who made sustainability a core part of Kendall- Jackson's DNA largely through innovation"
U.S. Congressman Mike Thompson and local business leaders convened today at Kendall-Jackson's Wine Center to celebrate the company's commitment to sustainability and unveil the solar cogeneration system, now supplying solar hot water and electricity to power the winery's extensive tank and bottle washing operations.
Mersen extends its HelioProtectionģ Program with the addition of PV String Monitoring Cards to its dedicated offering of photovoltaic products.
In order to guarantee long term power performance in mid- and large-scale photovoltaic (PV) installations, it is mandatory to properly monitor the production of the installation over time, at the string level. String level monitoring is guaranteed to maximize energy production, optimize facility management, and decrease operations and maintenance costs.
