To keep Canada’s farmers farming, agrivoltaics (the symbiotic combinations of solar and agriculture) provides an opportunity to add a reliable revenue stream while even increasing crop yields. We promote farmer led solar through agrivoltaics advocacy work. Agrivoltaics has enormous promise in Canada. Agrivoltaics is in its infancy in Canada, but as is the case globally, there is a projected rapid expansion over the coming 5 years and we intend to support that growth as a common ground for best practices, crop and generation measurements, new technologies, approaches and environmental and electrical policy development.
