Greg Barron-Gafford Talks About Agrivoltaics

Sept. 18, 2020

Congrats to Greg Barron-Gafford on this video story conducted by Now This Media on his agrivoltaics work:

The video captures the fact that agrivoltaics can be a climate adaptation solution that is tackling some of the greatest challenges facing farmers, namely excessive temperatures and dwindling water supplies.  Many of these rural communities are facing economic challenges because of reduced and more variable production; we are exploring the potential for farmers to have two income streams from the overstory PV panels and the understory vegetation. We are applying lessons learned from southern Arizona to capture the impacts within a new climate zone in central Colorado.
