100% Solar Is The Way Forward For Australian Wineries And Breweries

Wineries are going greener in Australia.

For instance Treasury Wine Estates, which produces the premium brands Penfolds, Wolf Blass, Pepperjack, and Wynns, has pledged to source its electricity needs from 100% solar by 2024.

Barossa Valley wineries have already achieved 100% renewable energy by installing a 3MW solar system. A 1.4MW system powers the Barossa Valley operations of the Yalumba Family. Even more reason to relax as you tipple your favorite drop. 

At Hidden Creek Winery Cafe Vineyard near Stanthorpe, Queensland, they throw in a free charge for your Tesla (or any other electric vehicle) when you stop in, offering fresh electrons from their rooftop system.

Solar breweries are also in the news.

Asahi Beverage Yatala

Carlton & United Breweries subsidiary the Asahi Beverage Yatala on Queensland’s Gold Coast has installed a 3MW rooftop system. This qualifies as Australia’s biggest rooftop solar installation on a brewery. Queensland’s sunshine is powering the brewing of Great Northern, Victoria Bitter, and Carlton Draught.

Now we need some electric trucks, vans, and utes to decarbonize the supply chain.
