With the threats of climate change, food insecurity, water shortages, along with the need for renewable sources of energy, it is becoming increasingly important to review any type of development project and look at the ways in which we can solve or alleviate multiple problems at the same time. Pairing solar fields with agricultural production offers a way to do just that, creating a sustainable relationship between two systems that have typically been in conflict with one another over land. This paper investigates the relationship between solar and agriculture by reviewing a large utility scale solar project in China that is also home to a goji berry plantation underneath it’s solar panels. A cost benefit analysis was completed to offer a quantitative comparison between solar sites with and without agriculture while also detailing the technical adjustments that are needed to make solar arrays hospitable to various types of agriculture.
