SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--San Antonio Winery, the founding winery of Riboli Family Wine Estates, has completed a solar project that will supply energy to its new world-class production facility and hospitality center in Paso Robles, California.

The 517-kw rooftop system was designed and built by REC Solar, a California-based provider of commercial, public sector and utility-scale solar solutions. It generates 827,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, enough to power 60 homes for a year. The system will provide about 80 percent of the energy needed for the facility and is expected to save more than $4 million over the next 30 years.

“This year Riboli Family Wine Estates is celebrating our 100th year producing wine. The solar system and other sustainability measures at our newest facility in Paso Robles are perfect examples of the continued innovation that has helped make our business successful,” said fourth-generation family winemaker Anthony Riboli.

“We are blessed to work in a beautiful area with a climate that provides us with plenty of sunshine. Using that sun to generate our own renewable power on our rooftop is a huge win. It empowers us to minimize our impact on the environment, create more predictable costs and produce incredible wine in our sustainable, modern facility,” said Riboli.

The rooftop project uses 1,520 panels across approximately 100,000 square feet of roof space, making it one of the largest rooftop solar projects for a winery on the Central Coast. The solar is on the roof of the production facility and will power both the wine operations and the adjacent hospitality center.
