Wow, I love this idea. Agrivoltaics. Why isn’t this being started everywhere? This gives struggling farmers a new income stream, plus takes electricity cost out of his P&L. And the plants grow well.
Would be perfect for my little Fallbrook town, once very farm-intensive but now with a lot of cleared, fallow land available. And about 350 days of sunshine each year. The electricity can power pumps for wells, which solves most of the water problem.
All this, and new word to boot: agrivoltaics.
