Solar sightings: Napa Solar blogging: Makin' wine with solar!

Hello solarDwellers:

I've been curious about how solar might be taking off in wine country--its the perfect combination of making a product with "greener" solar energy, along with the greater tax benefits these days to install solar in a commercial application.
Lo and behold, on a recent bike trip this month around Yountville and Napa, the heart of wine country, I came across the following installations: not huge, but a nice addition to the landscape. I'm sure this is only a small percentage of what's going on in this greenest of valleys, especially going forward.

Maybe we are beginning to learn from the greatest solar energy converters on earth, those things called plants!!!
