Hyperion is a solar developer with a specific concentration on agrivoltaic projects. Agrivoltaics or dual-use is the process of utilizing the same parcel of land for both solar photovoltaic power and agriculture. Over the years, Hyperion has developed a framework of strategic partnerships to deliver the most efficient end effective agrivoltaic systems to farmers and their communities. Through these partnerships, Hyperion is able to develop, finance, install, and maintain these agrivoltaic arrays.
The most ideal solar siting characteristics are flat nonshaded plots of land. Most of these spaces happen to be existing agricultural operations. A consistent criticism of large scale solar is that these arrays are being installed on prime ag land.
Agrivoltaics is the co-development of the same plot of land for both solar photovoltaic power and agriculture. Hyperion has been pioneering agrivoltaic research and implementation efforts of this niche market of the solar industry for over a decade.
