Instead of hunkering close to the earth, they’re mounted seven feet off the ground, with ample room for farmers or cows to wander underneath. Solar panels are separated by two- and three-foot gaps, instead of clustering tightly together. Light streams through these spaces and, underneath, rows of leafy kale and Brussels sprouts replace the typical bare earth or grass. This is a more beneficial idea than that puts forward solar farms as places for harvesting only the sun’s energy.
This unusual arrangement is one of the first examples of a dual-use solar installation—sometimes called “Agrivoltaics”.
Do you think agrivoltaics will be the future of agriculture? Plz comment on below
