To support the growth of Greencroft Bottling we are building a new facility which will be powered entirely by renewable wind and solar power, all generated on site. Our new 240,000 ft2 purpose-built bottling facility is under construction on our site in County Durham (DH9). When completed, this will be the most modern and environmentally sustainable wine bottling facility of its kind and has the potential to fill 400 million litres per year. The new facility will be powered by our wind turbines which feed directly into our on-site substations. We are installing approximately 1,000,000 Watt / 9,000m2 of solar panels on the south-facing roof. Together, these are sufficient to power our facility and it will be the first facility equipped to run independently of the National Grid.
