There’s a 4-MW solar farm being built in and among a 10-are wild blueberry farm in Maine. It’s partly an experiment to determine the best practices for “agrivoltaic” systems, which combine solar with farming lowbush blueberries.
” One of the many project innovations will include manufacturing custom equipment to be used within the rows of solar panels for wild blueberry management.” – that’s from this story.
At 4.2 MW, this will be bigger than any solar array in New Hampshire, which has become a real solar laggard.
