Installing Solar Panels on Agricultural Lands Maximizes Their Efficiency, New Study Shows

The most productive places on Earth for solar power are farmlands, according to an Oregon State University study.  The study, published today in the journal Scientific Reports, finds that if less than 1% of agricultural land was converted to solar panels, it would be sufficient to fulfill global electric energy demand. The concept of co-developing the same area of land for both solar photovoltaic power and conventional agriculture is known as agrivoltaics.  Read more.....
