Listening Session: On-Farm Solar Energy
Solar companies are actively looking to place industrial arrays on farmland, while many small farmers are interested in installing solar panels for home and community use. We invite farmers, solar industry professionals, and solar energy advocates to join us for a listening session facilitated by Pasa’s policy strategist Sara Nicholas, solar developer Doug Neidich (Greenworks), sheep farmer and solar grazier Caroline Owens (Owens Farm), and American Solar Grazing Association director Lexie Hain.
We’ll consider: Where is solar most compatible with commercial farming? What types of financing and technical development are available? And what policy changes need to happen to accelerate solar development, while balancing the interests of farmers, citizens, and energy companies?
