Karen and Carl Berndt, owners of Harbor Fish Market & Grille and Custards Last Stan in Baileys Harbor went live Thursday when they flipped the ‘ON’ switch on their new solar water heating system. 

The project, which took ten months to complete, included two very important people in the process: Ben Anschutz of Anschutz Plumbing in Baileys Harbor and Patrick Strantz, a building contractor, full time maintenance manager at the YMCA in Fish Creek and long time maintenance manager for the Berndts.

Together they have created a custom solar water heating system that not only addresses the water heating needs of the two restaurants but will also provide the hot water for the employee housing and the Berndt’s living quarters.
