Have You Herd? The Llamas Have Gone Solar in 2016

Llamas Have Gone Solar in 2016

NC Solar Now installs 66 solar panels on Four Ladies & Me Farm

East Bend, NC – June 2016: If you have been to the Yadkin Valley wine country, you may have noticed the large llama farm, Four Ladies & Me Farm, located on the same property as Divine Llama Vineyards. The llama farm recently went solar with a 16.8 kW solar array installed by NC Solar Now.


Michael West, the ‘me’ in Four Ladies & Me Farm, is also an architect and co-owner of the winery. He said he built the house with solar in mind back in 2008. “The house was designed for passive sustainability and going solar was always in the plan,” said West. The solar will provide the electricity used to run the llama farm, the buildings, barn, and the West residence. West said his electric bill will probably be 80 percent less than before.

“More and more different types of businesses are seeing the value in going solar and are choosing to do the right thing for the environment and their bottom line,” said NC Solar Now President Steve Nicolas. He said that the crew, being animal lovers, really enjoyed having the llamas around during the installation, too. West said, “It was a very easy process working with NC Solar Now. Everyone was great to work with, everything went smoothly, and the entire process was completed faster than we ever thought possible.”

Nicolas added, “The llama farm is a perfect fit for solar. Not just because of the sun exposure, but because it is a fitting example of how an agricultural business can benefit greatly from renewable energy.”

Even though the house was designed with solar in mind, West said the installation looks even better than he imagined. “The solar panels follow the pitch of the roof. People don’t even notice them at first because they blend in,” he said. West added the reaction to the solar panels has been incredibly positive and more and more friends and fans are asking him about going solar.
