Treasury Wine Estates switches to solar with largest winery solar system in Australia

Iconic Australian wines including Penfolds, Wolf Blass, Wynns, Squealing Pig and Pepperjack will be produced using 100% renewable electricity by 2024, with Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) announcing Australia’s largest winery solar installation across its Barossa and Karadoc wineries.

Solar panels will be installed by the end of 2022 at Barossa Winery and Production Centre in South Australia, and Karadoc Winery in Victoria. The installations, which include solar powered employee carparks, are expected to generate more than 5,500 megawatt-hours per year, the equivalent of powering 900 homes.

Shell Energy Australia is proud to partner with Treasury Wine Estates on the project, as part of a global renewable energy and emissions reduction roadmap, which will support TWE to deliver a comprehensive plan to reduce emissions within their operations – from the cellar door to offices, packaging centres and vineyards.
