Species protection & solar systems – does that fit together? 🤔

Yes! Because solar farms seal less than one percent of their area. Our plants are rarely walked on, which makes them safe havens for endangered animals and plants. We also promote biodiversity with a number of measures:
🌼 Sowing species-rich wildflower mixtures
🌳 Sowing of the areas with grass seed, hedges, and trees
🐝 Setting up hotels for amphibians, bees or bats
🦎 Creating deadwood piles or clearance cairns to provide shelter for sand lizards or slow worms
🦌 Providing extra-wide corridors between the module rows for deer
🐇 Erecting raised fences to enable small mammals to enter the solar farm
In this way, our solar systems can not only produce clean energy, but also make a valuable contribution to #speciesconservation!
