Growing crops on photovoltaic solar farms is a 'win-win' situation

A new model for solar farms that "colocates" crops and solar panels could result in the harvesting of valuable biofuel crops in addition to sunlight.


Climate change and crop yields
Crop yields likely to fall with rising temperatures

FSE’s David Lobell finds that an increase of more than two degrees Celsius in average global temperature is likely to cause yields of wheat, rice and maize to fall throughout the 21st century. Early adaptation could increase projected yields by up to 15 percent.
