Wine in the sun – Accolade Wines Mildura goes solar

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Accolade Wines is the largest wine group in Australia and the UK by volume. They have recently installed a 100kW ground-mounted solar system at their Mildura winery to reduce their demand on grid power. Epho Commercial Solar was chosen to install this after a competitive process and supplier selection.


A testimonial from Stanley Wines / Accolade Wines:

“Electricity is a significant cost factor of our operating expenses, but we were not sure on how solar power could help us. So when Epho approached us clearly  explained how it would work best for us, we felt comfortable making a decision to install a solar power system. It was great to deal with a company who had indeed our best interests in mind, and who worked very closely and seamlessly to meet our requirements in terms of timing, location and WH&S. The 100 kWp ground-mount system was literally installed within a few days. For a large winery like ourselves, it was definitely the right choice to go with a solar company, who are specialised in commercial solar systems and understand how to work with large corporations. I can highly recommend Epho.”
