How do we increase land efficiency in spaces where solar panels are installed?

There is a question often asked how do we increase the land efficiency in spaces where solar panels are installed? One of the criticisms level against the solar panels is the high amount of land used.

From the conservative estimate the amount of solar panels installed till end of 2019 is around 16GW this means 106sq.km solar panels have already been installed.

Agricultural land can be considered for solar as the installation of solar plants in remote places increases the infrastructure cost for laying X’mission lines and also AT&C Losses.

Hence the Land efficiency, the cost can be optimized by adopting the AgriPV System in which the architecture is geared to farming environment. The structural height can be 4-8m high, Module interspaced by 2 times solo pv, Module angle adjustment, and Engineered to affordable to maintain over 80% crop yield.

Hence the farmers can generate income from PV Power while farming as well.

Hence AgriPv can provide environmental preservation and growth with the local community.
