For three years Hire Electric worked with Badger Mountain Winery in Kennewick, WA to secure a REAP grant. Finally, on the third attempt the USDA granted the winery 25% of the system cost. Along with the 30% federal tax credit and Washington State’s $.15/kWH performance incentive, solar became a very attractive financial move for the winery.
The Powers family has been growing organic grapes and making sulfite free wine since 1988. Harvesting the sun to do great things comes naturally at Badger Mountain Winery.
