Penn State Oct. 24 EarthTalks Highlights Agricultural Integration And Solar Facilities - Agrivoltaics In Context

Solar energy’s role in transitioning to a carbon-free electric grid is continuing to grow, potentially accounting for 40% of the United State’s electricity supply by 2035. 

By developing key technological advancements and pushing boundaries within the industry, companies like Lightsource bp are working to harness sunlight to help power the world in a clean and sustainable way.

Lexie Hain, director of agrivoltaics and land management at Lightsource bp, will introduce solar grazing as an agrivoltaic practice, and discuss ecosystem service considerations, as well as aspects of performance, professionalism, and potential implementation in her talk "Agricultural integration and solar facilities: Agrivoltaics in context" at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24. 

The talk, which is free and open to the public, takes place in 112 Walker Building and via Zoom.

Hain’s talk is part of the Fall 2022 EESI EarthTalks series, “Exploring the Multiple Dimensions of Solar Energy.” 

Using both a local and global scope, the series addresses the latest perspectives on policies, environmental management, and the technological advancements towards the dual use, and social and cultural implications of solar energy.

The EESI EarthTalks series is supported by Penn State’s Earth and Environmental Systems Institute. Talks are also available via Zoom.
