LWVLC’s Solar Harvest Tour October 30th
A Solar Harvest Tour will be held on Sunday, October 30, 2016 from 1:00 pm through 4:00 pm in Leelanau County. The event organized by the League of Women Voters Leelanau County has stops at eleven locations highlighting an array of solar installations. Docents will be at all locations to answer questions on the cost and payback of installing solar energy units. The goal of the event is to familiarize participants with residential, business, farm and school applications of this increasingly competitive way of generating electricity that reduces reliance on carbon emitting fossil fuels. The tracking, ground, and/or roof arrays are open for public inspection as follows: In Northport. the Northport Creek Golf Course, the Defors and Gale homes, the Garthe Farm and the Northport School; in Lake Leelanau, the Abbott home; in Suttons Bay the Wach home and Leelanau Cheese; in Cedar the Wheadon home; in Elmwood Township, the Brengman Brothers Crain Hill Vineyards; and in Solon Township Light of Day.
