Agrivoltaics and Solar Regenerative Management Solutions

By 2030, utility-scale solar installations could cover almost 2 million acres of land in the United States. Traditional solar development would monopolize this land for just one use: energy production.

On the other hand, low-impact solar development might improve soil health, retain water, nurture native species, produce food, and provide even lower-cost energy to local communities.

Perhaps most importantly, low-impact solar development can make solar projects more responsive to the priorities and concerns of local communities.

Lee's plant farms Inc. has been a central Ky agriculture operation for over 35 years with vast experience in horticulture and developing regenerative agriculture techniques.

Adding regenerative agriculture practices with agrivoltaics techniques can multiply positive Environmental effects.

Lee's plant farms Inc. has the capabilities to partner with many organizations, universities, nonprofits, and local farmers to offer solar site contract maintenance through grazing, mowing plant harvest, and wildlife benefits and many communities' agricultural projects developed especially for your site and soils.

Exploring low-impact solar development offers community and environmental benefits, builds agriculture benefits in harmony with solar, and uses micro-climates created by solar to sequester carbon. It provides opportunities for young people, benefits wildlife, and increases actual farmland output.

Lee's Plant farm answers some of solar's most prominent opponents by putting together long-term plans answering the most common complaints such as;

  1. Prime farmland is not removed from production but transitioned into regenerative practices using land benefits to produce food and agriculture with small-scale regenerative farming principles.
  2. Adding beauty and natural landscapes to the sites
  3. Maintaining agricultural production and continuing to support farming businesses.
  4. Drainage and water retention increased with organic matter and carbon sequestering using NRCS cooperation recommendations.
  5. Young farmers incubator programs allow young farmers unable to acquire land to develop small scale regenerative practices.
  6. Providing increased jobs and food for local residents.
  7. Grazing enhancements using native plants and annuals exploded to promote maximum agricultural production.
  8. FFA students and projects will be devoted to those not having opportunities.
  9. Locally Schools will have access to new technology observation
  10. Specialty Crops can benefit from fenced-in solar farms protecting considerable animal wildlife damage.
  11. Partnering with nonprofits such as pheasants forever, quails unlimited, and the National Audubon society.
  12. Pollinator habitat is increased and endangered, and beneficial insects are allowed to flourish naturally.
  13. Transition to organic capabilities explored in some areas
  14. Aquaculture possibilities are explored when possible.
