Permalink Cornell Study Looks at Potential for Pollinator Habitat on Solar Sites

Cornell University reports that it is partnering with Cypress Creek Renewables, a leading national solar developer, on a groundbreaking study to determine the local benefits of wildflower plantings on solar sites in central New York and the Hudson Valley. The three-year research project will determine whether wildflower plantings on solar sites help to boost pollinator populations, and it will assess whether wildflower plantings on solar farms result in better pollination for nearby crops, producing economic benefits to growers. Cypress Creek believes that creating pollinator habitat on solar sites could have a rapid and measurable impact on the conservation and restoration of pollinator populations.
