Offering farmers reduced electricity costs while improving crops & livestock conditions
Simultaneous use of agricultural land for yield production and PV power generation. The photovoltaic modules are installed between or above agricultural fields. In such a way that the land can still be cultivated with machinery or used for keeping livestock.
Modules serve as a shield against rain, sun, or frost. This innovative technology provides farmers with sustainable energy and helps them reduce water consumption, and provides shade and shelter for crops and animals.
Studies show that Agri-PV can increase crop yields and improve animal health, making it a win-win for farmers, and the environment.
Tailored for crop & animal
PV modules are installed for best-addressing crop or animal needs
Reduction of electricity cost
Farmers can produce their own electricity while improving conditions for their crops and livestock
Reduction of Fertilizers
PV modules are used as canopies, enabling the reduction of watering and fertilizers needs
Hail, Rain & Sun Protection
The modules provide protection against hail, rain, and sun
Additional source of revenue
Installation reduces the energy bill. Any surplus generated renewable electricity can be sold
Benefits for farmers
