Australian Guide to Agrisolar for Large-Scale Solar

Sharing knowledge and learnings from agrisolar practices from around Australia and the world, this guide will assist proponents of utility-scale solar, and the landholders and farmers who work with them, to integrate agricultural activities into solar farm projects.

As solar grazing is the dominant form of agrisolar for utility-scale solar, this guide has a strong focus on sharing the knowledge and learnings from Australian projects that have integrated solar grazing practices to date.

It also aims to accelerate our understanding of the opportunities for solar projects to support a wide range of other food and fibre growing activities and biodiversity outcomes, from horticulture and viticulture to cropping and beekeeping.
