Mocksville winery installs solar panels

Charlotte-based solar panel maker Sencera has installed what it says is the first solar array at an N.C. winery, the Charlotte Observer's Bruce Henderson reports.

RayLen Vineyards & Winery in Mocksville, about 45 miles north of Charlotte, is using 104 100-watt panels to power refrigeration systems, pumping machinery and offices.

General manager Steve Shepard expects the solar array to cut the winery's electricity bills by at least half. Government incentives helped lower installation costs.

Sencera's thin-film panels use a tiny fraction of the silicon used in conventional panels, making them cheaper to produce.
