(OTCQB: SLTD), a leading solar power company and the developer of a proprietary high efficiency solar cell, today announced that its SUNworks division has finalized a contract with Jackson Family Winery ("JFW") to install solar systems totaling up to 3 megawatts, located throughout a number of JFW Properties. 

Abe Emard, SUNworks CEO, stated, "Once completed, the installed systems will offset nearly 70% of the wineries electrical consumption. The projected savings over the next 25 years will be approximately $11MM."

Julian Gervrean, JFW Senior Sustainability Manager, said, "We have been working on this project with SUNworks for quite some time. After several months of planning, it's exciting to see it come to fruition. This is a giant step forward for us in meeting our sustainability goals."

Last year JFW commissioned SUNworks to complete a 300kW solar system located at their newly renovated Ramal Winery located inside Napa Valley.

The SUNworks management team plans to complete the JFW projects by November 2014.

SUNworks continues to prove it is on the forefront of the solar industry. Mike Podnebesnyy, Vice President of SUNworks stated, "I am proud of the unique design and installation on this project. In this case, battery storage will be implemented in conjunction with solar PV to give our customer control over their demand consumption. We believe this is the direction in which our industry is heading. SUNworks is on the leading edge of this offering and is discussing this option with our current and future customers."

Jim Nelson, CEO of Solar3D, concluded, "It was exciting to have such a prominent company like Jackson Family Wineries trust SUNworks with their installation at Ramal Winery. To have them come back and engage SUNworks to facilitate an additional 3 megawatts on some of the wineries most prestigious locations is a tribute to the quality of the work SUNworks is doing."
