Cogenra Solar, a provider of distributed solar cogeneration systems, today announced the nation’s largest rooftop solar cogeneration system to date at Kendall-Jackson’s Kittyhawk winery in Windsor, CA. Expanding on Kendall-Jackson’s existing energy and water conservation projects, the 96-module, 241kW hybrid solar photovoltaic and thermal array is expected to save approximately $30,000 in annual energy costs.
This erudite work by Zach Shahan over at Clean Technica is an excellent read for anyone wanting to pick up a quick backgrounder on solar energy. Next time you have a discussion or debate about renewable energy of the solar persuasion, try this on for size. You’ll be glad you did.
