In the face of Climate Change and development pressure, Northwest Washington needs both solar power generation and increased protection of agricultural land. Agrivoltaics are an emerging strategy that incorporates photovoltaic arrays into agricultural systems. Join us on Thursday, Sept 23rd, from 6:30-8 pm via zoom to learn about the opportunities, considerations, and nitty-gritty details. This presentation is geared toward farmers and agricultural landowners although all are welcome.
