Robert Biale Vineyards has installed a new 145kW Solaria PowerXT solar array on their winery and tasting room in Napa, California. The Summit Technology Group has completed the installation of the new Pure Black solar system. Biale's new array consists of 362 Solaria PowerXT 400R-PM solar modules and SolarEdge inverters and optimizers integrated into the property's existing generator. The solar panels were procured from Santa Rosa through CED Greentech.
