Hoepler Winery now powered by solar energy
Last year we installed 1,000sqm of solar panels on the roof of our winery and the first 25 days of data look very promising indeed.
We generated 19Mwh of power. Our annual electricity use is approx. 35Mwh so at this rate it would appear we will have generated enough energy for our own use in the first 46 days alone.
The excess is fed straight into the grid and as the average Austrian household uses 3,800 KWh of electricity a year we have already generated enough electricity to power 5 houses.
Fantastic news and the realisation of one of many such projects we have in mind to ensure we live up to our sustainable label.
