|Related NCAT Resource:
A feature in Farm & Ranch Guide introduces the practice of agrivoltaics, or farming under solar panels. The article discusses options for agriculture under solar arrays, including dairy and sheep grazing, beekeeping, and horticultural or forage crops. Pollinator habitat under solar panels can also be beneficial to neighboring crop fields. This feature discusses some of the considerations involved in agrivoltaics and presents the concept of low-impact solar development that can make it easier to implement agrivoltaics.
