"...a 1.2 MW community solar garden where researchers will study how best to grow crops underneath solar panels... NREL and other researchers will study how vegetation under our solar panels can create microclimates that improve [their] efficiency...
A large pollinator habitat will be established around our solar garden to provide more forage for local bees."

@nindokag Where I live there is a controversy over the new solar panel arrays being installed on high quality arable land, which is kept barren via herbicide, so this is exciting research!
