Impact of dual use Solar Agriculture installations in Massachusetts

The objective with this award is to have the opportunity to do robust research to address the dearth of data on the impact of this solar approach to agricultural productivity and farm viability.

The dual use of land for farming and solar energy has gotten many people excited about its potential.

This project will do the research to allow us to help farmers and communities make informed decisions about the solar opportunities that are coming their way.
