Solar Seminar Series: Land Transitions During Solar Energy Expansion in PA

August 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

With projections in the Commonwealth that 80,000 acres of land could be transitioned to solar arrays by 2030, what will the impact be to farmland in PA?  Will all of that impact agricultural land or are their other options? And where is the technology heading related to continually improving efficiencies?  This discussion will also explore the convergence of deployed solar energy in dual use systems more commonly known as agrivoltaics.  How are energy companies and farmers partnering to allow some form of agricultural production to be an active part of the energy production system?
