We’re excited to announce our largest solar initiative since opening in 1998 — dubbed “Above The Grid.” Although we’ve added and updated our passive solar for helping to heat our water, we haven’t increased our photovoltaic capacity in over ten years.

This system has the potential to supply up to 69% of the Hike Inn’s electric needs. Once the panels start generating green energy, we will post updates on the amount of solar energy created and used by the Inn. There will also be interactive opportunities to use and learn about solar energy in the lobby and during our daily facility tour.

All of this would not be possible without the generous financial support of All Points North Foundation and the commitment of our Len Foote Hike Inn Board of Directors.
