Webinar Listening Session: Siting & Design for Farm-Based Solar

August 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

What rules and tools should guide the development of alternative energy on farmland?

Many groups are making recommendations for where utility-scale solar arrays should (or shouldn’t) be placed. But what would farmers like to see? And what are the considerations for siting solar on farms in a way that doesn’t disrupt agricultural production?

Join us for a lunchtime discussion with a panel including the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and farmers who have successfully integrated solar on their operations. Share your ideas for the alternative energy landscape you would like to see in the region.

Speakers

  • Mike Roth, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture
  • Scott Case, Pasa Board Chair and farmer at Patchwork Farm
  • Nicole Faraguna, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
