Barossa sunshine is wine win for Pernod Ricard

Two major Barossa Valley solar projects and an agreement with an energy wholesaler has allowed Pernod Ricard Winemakers to become Australia’s first major wine company to source all its electricity from renewables.

Energy company AGL has installed more than 10,300 solar panels across the company’s two Barossa Valley wineries in South Australia, with a predicted annual generation of 4,000 megawatt-hours.

The first 1MW stage of the company’s 2.8MW solar installation was switched on at its Rowland Flat winery in the Barossa about 12 months ago.

Voting for the Regional Showcase has officially closed. The winner of the People's Choice Award will be announced on 20 November.
