Agrivoltaics for grape farms

Grape farmers are embracing agrivoltaics, a combination of renewable energy and agriculture, to maximize the land they use. By installing solar panels onto existing crops, they are able to generate clean electricity while still harvesting valuable produce. 

At Halo Solar, we are excited to see the innovative ways farmers are using agrivoltaic systems to sustainably generate energy. As one grape farmer, Gabriel Merino, puts it, “We’re using the same land for two different things. It’s a great way to make sure that we are using our resources efficiently.” 


Agrivoltaics is not only an efficient use of land, but it can also improve crop yields by reducing water usage and cutting down on weeds. Additionally, the solar panels provide shade to the crops, helping them to better withstand extreme temperatures. 

We are proud to be a part of the agrivoltaic movement and are committed to helping farmers install solar panels in a way that is both beneficial to their crops and the environment. We believe that agrivoltaics is a powerful tool that can help farmers maximize their land and generate clean electricity while still producing valuable produce.
