Solar energy is crucial for sustainability, but it demands extensive land use in Colorado, and other states. Conventional solar installations can negatively impact ecosystems. Researchers introduce “ecovoltaics,” aiming to harmonize energy production and ecosystem preservation. While agrivoltaics is a step in the right direction, it often prioritizes power generation over ecological concerns. Ecovoltaics, on the other hand, combines both, fostering biodiversity. Additionally, these approaches can contribute to the restoration of abandoned lands while supplying clean energy.
