Welcome to Récolte Energy
Récolte Energy is a Napa Valley based renewable energy consulting firm.
We evaluate and implement renewable energy systems to help our clients reduce their energy bills. We are technology-, financing-, and vendor-neutral, Owner’s Representatives. Our clients are primarily wineries, schools, and non-profits in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We develop turn-key fuel cell and solar photovoltaic (PV) projects for our clients in the 30 kW – 5 MW range. We do feasibility studies, develop Request for Proposals (RFP), evaluate proposals, negotiate terms with vendors, provide project management support and vendor oversight during construction, and manage utility rebate, interconnection, and billing tasks.
Our projects have achieved many technical, financial, and regulatory “firsts”:
Far Niente Winery - 1st “floatovoltaic” system in the world
Sutter Home Winery – 1st large scale winery fuel cell installation
Gasser Foundation – 1st solar PPA for a small non-profit
Saintsbury Winery – 1st solar installation in PG&E’s right-of-way
