MODELING AND SIMULATION
Sandbox Solar has developed a agrivoltaics modeling framework for accurately forecasting agricultural and photovoltaic production, air temperatures, soil moisture, and estimated water savings for locations throughout the United States.
SANDBOX SOLAR AGRIVOLTAIC RESEARCH
In 2019, Sandbox Solar was awarded a USDA SBIR Phase 1 grant to study agrivoltaics with semi-transparent technologies. Sandbox installed 9 separate pole mounts with 3 different panel transparencies. Our team has been working with the CSU Horticulture Department to collect crop yields and growing environment data. Since 2019, Sandbox Solar has conducted agrivoltaics modeling research.
