Harvest the Sun
Host a Community Solar Farm on Your Land
Preserve your land and power your community
Leasing your land for a community solar farm enables you to earn passive income while preserving your land for future generations. As you harvest the sun, through agrivoltaics you can grow crops on your land at the same time with no harm to the soil. Once your lease is done, the solar panels can be removed, allowing for future crop production.
Each piece of land comes with its own unique potentials and drawbacks. The best way to determine the feasibility of the land to set up a solar energy farm would be to contact us for a free site assessment.

How do I know my land is a good fit for community solar?
We will work with you to determine if your land is a good fit, but here are some basic characteristics we look for:
- 15-25 acres of land
- Land is flat and clear

What is agrivoltaics?
Agrivoltaics is a word that describes the pairing of solar panels with agricultural production. Grow crops underneath solar panels to provides a multi-purpose use for the land. You can produce food and also effectively cool the solar panels, which increases their efficiency. You can also plant pollinators underneath the panels to improve soil health and crop production. You can also introduce animals such as sheep for grazing purposes. When developing a community solar project with you, we offer agrivoltaics as an option so you can maximize the use of the panels during the duration of the lease.
