Energy-Efficient Wineries

wineries

It’s all about crafting high quality wine.

Not every business expense translates to better quality wine. Spending more than you need to on your energy bills doesn’t make for truer, richer wine flavors—it just wastes your money. Let us help.

Chelan PUD pays up to 100% for quality lighting and equipment that will reduce your operating and maintenance costs while improving performance.

Enhance your winery aesthetics and get better quality, reliable equipment while reducing your operating and maintenance costs. Lower overhead costs can translate to improvements where they matter most, like making the highest quality wines.

Lighting & Controls

Energy-efficient lighting can be a quick, easy, and inexpensive win. New lighting fixtures and LEDs provide better quality light right where you need it, enhancing the functionality of your interior spaces.

High-efficiency lighting fixtures use up to 90% less energy—and money—and controls save you more by automatically turning lights off in unoccupied spaces and adjusting light levels in empty parking lots. Long lasting and shatter resistant, LEDs reduce your ongoing maintenance and replacement costs and lower your energy bills for years.
