Solar & Agriculture
Did you know that solar and agriculture are not mutually exclusive? This summer’s hot topic is Agrivoltaics, the co-locating of solar and agricultural operations.
Studies have shown that combing solar and agriculture leads to increased land use efficiency and increased production. Farmers have had proven success combining solar ground mount systems with grazing animals, and native plants that support pollinators.
Co-locating solar and agriculture provides environmental, ecological, agricultural, and economic benefits while dispelling the myth that energy and food production are mutually exclusive.
