Crain Hill Vineyard Installs Michigan’s Largest Solar Trackers
Brengman Brothers Crain Hill Vineyard in Leelanau County has installed the largest solar electric system in Michigan that uses new solar tracking technology. The Winery’s three AllSun Trackers brand solar panels follow the sun and keep the panels perpendicular to the sun’s rays. The Brengman Brothers solar set-up produces about 30,000 kilowatts annually (the average U.S. home consumes about 11,000 KWh of electricity annually.) Solar power generated electricity not used by the Winery is sold back to the local electric utility.
