Agrophotovoltaics is a business for farmers, fishermen, and livestock farmers to use their idle land to build a PV power generator structureThis is a 'PV double-cropping' project that allows farmers to simultaneously generate income from PV power generation facilities along with farming revenues.
There are no revenues during the off-season for crop farming, and annual profits are often lost in the event of a natural disaster.
This is a 'one stone, two birds' project that provides a stable income to farmers and also help expand the supply of renewable energy through an eco-friendly energy production.
