Lexie Hain of the American Solar Grazing Association advocates for what's known as agrivoltaics — essentially the coexistence of agriculture and solar energy facilities on the same property. In this photo, Hain is watching sheep graze in front of solar panels, getting the nutrition they need while keeping the property's foliage from overgrowing, thereby ensuring the panels have the best chance to capture sunlight.
