Dual-Use: Agriculture and Solar Photovoltaics
October 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
In 2018, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (MA DOER) established the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program. This program carries special incentives for solar systems that allow “dual-use,” defined as solar on farmland where the land continues to be used for agricultural purposes. These facilities are also referred to as “agrivoltaic” systems.
The presentation will offer an overview of the guidelines for dual-use, provide a close look at look at the economics of a dual-use system, and outline the process for planning and installing such a system.
