BrightNight strives to integrate sustainable development and long-term operations and maintenance practices. This approach is good for our project communities and often reduces project maintenance costs. The Hop Hill project will be a model of sustainable infrastructure. You can learn more about the BrightNight approach to the Hop Hill project by watching our video.
We are committed to sustainable infrastructure
A solar farm combined with a traditional agricultural activity, such as grazing, is referred to as “agrivoltaics.” Sheep grazing maintains productive land and reduces vegetation management costs. Also, sheep are solar friendly; in fact, they enjoy the shade from our solar panels!
Once construction is complete, the project site will be seeded with a pollinator mix for ground cover. This approach will create a valuable pollinator habitat, increase crop production for neighboring farms, and reduce costly ground maintenance.
Low Water Impact
Solar + storage electricity is a smart choice for water conservation; this form of electricity generation requires minimal water use for occasional module cleaning.
