Objectives & Site Considerations:
The grid supply wasn’t sufficient for the new cellar door and accommodation at Inkwell Wines in South Australia’s McLaren Vale, so a solar and battery system was needed to provide additional capacity. Dr Irina Santiago-Brown is a leading expert in sustainable viticulture, so naturally, this is embedded into everything at Inkwell Wines.
Average summer demand: 26.97kWh
Average winter demand: 25.43kWh
Demand surge: 16kW
Inkwell Wines’ Sustainable Cellar Door, Luxury Accommodation, and Manager’s Homestead are all powered by a solar and battery system.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We would like to specifically acknowledge the Kaurna, Wathaurong, Wonnarua, Wiradjuri and Boonwurrung people. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
