Farmer-First Solar

Agrivoltaic Research

Agrivoltaic research explores the integration of solar arrays with agricultural activities, aiming to optimize both energy production and crop yields.

Hyperion is dedicated to collaborating with local agricultural experts, researchers, and Cooperative Extension staff to explore what may make sense at your farm.

Hyperion has participated on several U.S. Department of Energy research grants over our history in the agrivoltaic space. We’ve partnered with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), American Farmland Trust, and University of Massachusetts Amherst on various research initiatives.

The research topics include crop performance and the agrivoltaic microclimate’s effect on economic viability and cost-benefit analysis.

We are currently participating in a number of solar research projects.
