Taking Advantage of Solar Power

It takes approximately 2,618 GJ (Gigajoules – 1 Billion Joules) of energy (727,000 kWh “Kilowatt Hours” of electricity) to process one ton of grapes into a finished product, such as Bottled Wine.

Thus, many wine farms throughout South Africa install solar PV technology on their estates to create sustainable energy resources to become less dependent on the power grid whilst reducing their carbon footprint.
