Spring Hill Greens | Fort Collins Agrivoltaics

Spring Hill Greens is a local Fort Collins farm that strives to be entirely carbon-neutral. So naturally, they would need an extensive solar system to generate sufficient power for their entire farm to be energy self-sufficient. However, Spring Hill Greens required more land to support a conventional ground-mount solar array. What they needed was an Agrivoltaic solution. So they called their local agrivoltaic solar company, Sandbox Solar.

With our agrivoltaic expertise, we were confident that we could find a unique solution that would benefit both the plants and the farmers. So we constructed a custom bifacial solar fence to meet Spring Hill Greens’ energy needs while optimizing their solar land use. We placed these bifacial solar fences between their greenhouses, land that would otherwise be unused. 

“Why are the fences vertical?” you may ask. Well, this is where our agrivoltaics team comes into play. A standard solar fence angled at the sun would not fit. However, a vertical solar fence would. Meanwhile, we noticed their greenhouses have UV reflective film coverings to protect their plants from excessive sun exposure. To capture these reflected rays, we utilized bifacial solar panels that harness UV rays from both sides.

This solution optimizes solar land use and takes advantage of agricultural practices simultaneously. As a result, Spring Hill Greens is now producing enough energy to power its entire farm!
