The largest solar system installation at an Australian winery.

AGL and Yalumba

Agriculture (Winery), VIC

In 2016, Yalumba engaged AGL to develop a cost effective and renewable energy solution that would help it achieve its sustainability and business performance objectives. This resulted in the largest solar system installation at an Australian winery

Project goals

Yalumba has a commitment to sustainable winemaking and a strong desire for the business to be powered, in part, by clean, renewable energy. It was important that AGL’s energy proposal complemented the organisation’s sustainability goals and initiatives.

Our solution

Yalumba took advantage of AGL’s solar Smart Plan and AGL designed and installed a solar system on their site. There was no upfront capital required and Yalumba has been saving from the day the system was switched on, with low solar energy rates.

The result

Preserving the environment is important to Yalumba. Their solar system generates approximately 2,050 MWh of clean, renewable energy annually. This offsets approximately 1,008 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year and will continue for a projected period of 25 years.

18% per year

Reduced energy consumption1
