SolAg bridges the understanding between agricultural landowners, farmers and solar developers by:
Working alongside established agricultural organizations to help educate policymakers crafting legislation incentivizing agrivoltaics and framing its long-term agricultural integrity
Partnering with academic institutions to foster scientifically based studies of photosynthetically available radiation, soil health, and agricultural production under and around agrivoltaic projects.
Developing site specific farm logistics plans that address the needs of the land, the farmer, the solar developer, and the community.

While Federal and State initiatives are accelerating renewable energy development, conservation groups and the general public are pushing back on siting solar in forested areas and focusing more attention on already cleared farmland as an attractive alternative. Simultaneously, agricultural landowners are recognizing the benefits of diversifying and stabilizing their income through solar.
SolAg educates solar companies on what it means to be a farmer and enhancements needed to enable the production of crops under and around solar arrays.
