WineWeb: A Solar Powered Company
As wineries become more green, so should their suppliers.
All the energy needed to power, heat and cool WineWeb's office space comes from the sun. In addition, our solar array provides enough power to offset the energy use of the servers in our data center.
Our photovoltaic solar system came online on December 29, 2009. It's a 4.2kWh grid-tied solar array using highly-efficient Kyocera solar panels and a Solectria inverter.
We are lucky to live and work in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where 300+ days of sunshine and the high altitude make solar power even more effective.
Of course we opted for the ability to monitor the system in real-time over the Internet. Statistics from the solar power inverter are collected every minute, and it's publicly available online at solrenview.com.
