RFN-NJ Chat & Chew: Grazing Cows, Sheep, & Chickens with Vertical Bifacial Solar Panels

Join us for a webinar on vertical bifacial solar panels! Vertical bifacial solar panels can be used with cows, sheep, and chickens and they collect as much energy as traditional solar panels in the summer and more energy in the winter.

About The Event

Join the Regenerative Farm Network (RFN-NJ)  for a webinar on vertical bifacial solar panels! Vertical bifacial solar panels can be used with cows, sheep, and chickens and they collect as much energy as traditional solar panels in the summer and more energy in the winter. 

Margaret Lee from EnSave will explain vertical bifacial solar panels, how they work, and available grant funding to get solar panels on your farm. Dave Specca (Rutgers University Agrivoltaics Program Lead) will give a brief talk on ongoing Agrivoltaics research at Rutgers farms.

This will be an informal webinar so participants are encouraged to ask questions during the webinar.

What is the Regenerative Farm Network (RFN-NJ)?

North  Jersey RC&D has created the Regenerative Farm Network (RFN-NJ) as a  place for NJ farmers to learn and exchange knowledge regarding  regenerative and climate-smart farm practices. Through  RFN-NJ, farmers can receive technical assistance, training  opportunities, speaker-development and farmer-to-farmer networking. Learn more here: https://www.northjerseyrcd.org/rfn-nj

The Regenerative Farm Network is made possible by the Conservation Outreach: Equity through Cooperative Agreements grant through USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
