Russ and Stacie Hamilton of Hamilton Cellars are building a beautiful new winery and tasting room out on Red Mountain with the goal of being the 1st net zero winery in Washington State. www.hamiltoncellars.com
To that end Hire Electric’s Solar Division just installed a 33kW solar array on the east facing barrel room roof that will generate approximately 44MWh per year – enough to fully power about four northwest homes. We used 121 – SolarWorld 275 watt solar panels and Enphase Micro Inverters for module level monitoring. The winery features extensive efficiency measures, an electric vehicle charging station, innovative cooling systems and solar thermal water and space heating.
Ribbon cutting and open house will be at 1pm on Tuesday, September 22, 2015.

<and so does the federal tax credit>
What could be more fun that giving the gift of electricity from sunshine for Christmas (and getting a 30% federal tax credit)? The solar crew finished 2 jobs yesterday – just in time for Christmas (only one more to go before year’s end) and now they’re going to take a couple days off to spend with friends and family. I just can’t thank the guys enough for their dedication to quality and customer satisfaction. They really went above and beyond this year. Here’s a big Christmas thanks to Mickey, Shamus, Harley & Adam. Have a great and well deserved Christmas celebration.
