Yalumba has one of the largest solar installations of any winery in Australia. Working with AGL, the solar systems will generate 2,900MW of clean, renewable energy annually. Our commitment to solar power extends across our wineries at Angaston and Oxford Landing, our Nursery, and our distribution businesses in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. In South Australia, 25% of our power needs are met by our own production.
And that’s not all... The installation of solar panels on our warehouse roofs has significantly increased the insulation properties of the buildings, delivering additional savings in the power required to keep our wine at a constant temperature.
Yalumba was awarded the South Australian Wine Industry Association 2017 Environmental Excellence Award in recognition of our emissions reduction program.
Our commitment to solar power continues as we develop our Tasmanian wineries, with an objective to produce 50% of our own clean energy.
