Bolney Wine Estate

Genfit have designed and installed a 59.4kWp solar PV array across two roof spaces, following the construction of a new winery, at Bolney Wine Estate in Sussex.

The system installation was a community funded project by Brighton Energy Cooperative.  The energy generated will be sold to the winery at a lower rate than regular fossil fuel generated power through a PPA (power purchase agreement.

The system benefits from dual module level system monitoring, through Solaredge panel optimisation.  This helps towards providing detailed data and analysis on the PV systems performance through the Solaredge Monitoring Portal.

198 PV modules were installed in total, providing an estimated annual generation of 63.6MWh.

The array is greatly reducing the winery’s usage of energy from fossil fuel, creating a saving of 28.57 tonnes of harmful CO2 emissions each year.
