Environmentally Sustainable Winegrowing
We have Maintained a Zero Carbon footprint since 2016:
We believe we have achieved a zero carbon foot print from our activities at Paradigm Hill. In addition to having been our own “Carbon Cops” and audited and then reviewed all our energy consumption, we have also installed a substantial 132 panel, 30kWh photo voltaic cell [PV Cell] system that is rated to generate about 40+ Mega Watt Hours of electricity per year.
We feed power into the grid when it isn’t needed here - and then draw down when we require it! We export about 1/3rd of our production [about 15 Mega Watt hours] and also have a 17kWH batter back up.
