Located in the Templeton Gap area of West Paso Robles, this simple agricultural storage structure rests at the toes of the 50 acre James Berry Vineyard. Designed as a modern pole barn, the reclaimed oil field pipe structure’s primary objectives are to provide an armature for a photovoltaic roof to offset the electrical demand on the adjacent Saxum Winery, collect rainfall for irrigating trees and adjacent grazing meadow, as well as to provide covered storage for farming vehicles and implements, workshop and storage for livestock supplies. The photovoltaic system is designed to produce roughly 87,000 kWh per year, with the capacity to take Saxum Winery and the vineyard irrigation wells off-grid.
