Solar Farm Sites can have a holistic approach to sustainability by:

  • Providing habitat for insects & wildlife
  • Increasing pollinator activity to nearby crops
  • Reducing soil erosion
  • Increasing organic matter in soil
  • Building healthy topsoil for future land uses
  • Requiring less maintenance and mowing

Native vegetation is vitally important to ecological restoration. Solar Farm Seed Mixes, thoughtfully designed with native plant species, are becoming the preferred choice for solar operators.

With a clear understanding of vegetation, cover crops and a well-designed erosion control plan; beneficial native vegetation can be an all around win-win.
