The development of clean, solar energy is an important component of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the electric sector. However, solar development can pose conflicts with land preservation efforts when solar projects are targeted to prime farmlands, forests and other sensitive lands that are priorities for conservation, restoration and improved management. In addition, a new category of so-called "dual-use" projects seek to combine solar development and agriculture in compatible ways, increasingly known as "agrovoltaics". Land trusts should understand how solar development may impact their work and how they can engage to shape sound policies and projects that support solar development in appropriate locations and minimize conflicts with preservation goals. We can have clean energy AND healthy farms and forests. This is not an either-or choice. When utility-scale solar projects are properly sited, our climate wins.
