Turns out Nature’s solar panels and human’s solar panels like the same climate.
The short version:
- Two recent papers published set out to discover where solar panels work best.
- Contrary to most of our expectations, sun-scorched deserts aren’t the answer.
- Solar panels also work best in regions with light wind and low humidity. Basically some of the best farm land out there.
- The good news is solar panels seem to be good for crops.
- According to the study, areas covered by the panels generated 90 percent more grass than before, using a fraction of the water.
- Other studies are seeing similar results.
I’ll admit, I was in the sun-scorched desert camp. It seems like the solar story is just getting better and better. The same land can create energy and crops? Lets keep this going.
