Crain Hill Vineyard, north of Traverse City, is Michigan’s first 100 percent solar powered winery. Dual axis, “All Sun Trackers,” have been used in the installation performed by Leelanau Solar of Northport. Each of the three tracking arrays consists of twenty-four 260 watt solar photovoltaic modules for a total peak output of 18.72 kW. The project benefits from the 30 percent federal investment tax credit and has been awarded a 25 percent REAP grant from the USDA. The annual electric output will be approximately 30,000 kWh.
