Spanish winemaker Vins Raïmat – a unit of Codorníu, Spain’s second-largest producer of conventional glowing wine – has put in a 30 kW photovoltaic wall at its manufacturing facility within the Catalonian city of Raïmat, Spain.

“Along with producing power, this vertical set up reduces the power consumption of the tubs, because it isolates them from direct contact with the solar,” a Becquel spokesperson instructed pv journal. “It’s a triple impact, because it achieves power era, insulation from the solar and discount of power consumption, with the electrical energy being required to maintain chilly the content material of the tubs.”
Becquel used 455 W Canadian Photo voltaic panels within the facility. The challenge will be capable to generate round 429,960 kWh per yr for the vineyard. It’s anticipated to cowl 35% of the corporate’s power wants.
