A large portion of a solar farm area will not be occupied by panels & equipment, enabling us to create habitats for nature & enhance biodiversity
Recent studies of agri-environment schemes indicate that appropriate land management can bring about increases in pollinators on agricultural land. In the same way, with appropriate land management, solar farms have the potential to support and contribute to national biodiversity targets. Indeed,solar farms may have several additional advantages in that they are secure sites with little disturbance from humans and machinery once construction is complete. Recent research suggests biodiversity gains on solar farms can be significant.
