Green electricity above, crops below: RWE plants seedlings at its agrivoltaics demonstration plant

Things are turning doubly green at RWE’s agrivoltaics plant (Agri-PV) in the Rhenish mining area. Since the beginning of the year, around 6,100 solar modules have been generating green electricity, and now farmers have sown the first seeds and planted crops on the site. On the approximately seven-hectare recultivation area on the edge of the Garzweiler … Continue reading Green electricity above, crops below: RWE plants seedlings at its agrivoltaics demonstration plant
