NECA and IBEW Instrumental in Napa Valley LEED Gold Certification

Loading the player...

Say the words "Napa Valley," and world-class wines instantly come to mind. The region is home to more than 400 wineries, many of which have earned international acclaim for the wines that they produce. One of the most well-respected winemakers in the region is Hall Wines, which has earned accolades and high ratings for many of its wines since opening in 2005.

In addition to producing outstanding wines, Hall is unique in that it is the only winery in California with LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, showing excellence in environmental sustainability for design and construction. Hall's winery in St. Helena, California, actually holds two LEED Gold certifications: one for the production facility and the other for the tasting room. NECA contractor Napa Electric and IBEW Local 180 were instrumental in helping install the electrical systems that played an integral part in obtaining these certifications.

"Napa Electric worked with us on both phases of this project," says Mike Reynolds, president of Hall Wines. "They've done a great job, and the most important thing when we are working with a contractor is that it gets done in a timely way and that everything works."
