Robert Biale Vineyards has installed a new 145-kW Solaria PowerXT solar array atop its winery and tasting room in Napa, Calif. Summit Technology Group completed the installation of the Robert Biale solar system in less than four weeks. Biale’s new array is comprised of 362 Solaria PowerXT 400R-PM solar panels and SolarEdge inverters and optimizers that integrate with the property’s existing generator.
Commercial property and homeowners select Solaria solar panels because they’re visually appealing along with being among the most powerful and reliable solar panels on the market
“Summit has a long track record in solar. Our team is comprised of dedicated professionals with deep expertise in the design, installation, and maintenance of solar power systems. Solar installers such as ourselves -and our customers- have myriad choices when it comes to buying solar. Solaria not only consistently delivers superior performance; it also has an appealing all-black aesthetic design that our customers prefer.
