American Farmland Trust says more research is needed at the state and federal levels to understand the impact of solar development on farmland.

Samantha Levy is the organization’s conservation and climate policy manager.

“There’s a lot we don’t know, this is a much newer application of technology, solar development is scaling larger,” she shares.

American Farmland Trust’s recent smart solar recommendations for policymakers request more research to study how projects will impact local communities and the future of food production.
