Presented by Lexie Hain, founder and director of the American Solar Grazing Association [ASGA], with ASGA member and experienced Missouri based rancher Trent Hendricks. Both Lexie and Trent have led the emerging industry of solar grazing in the United States as farmers and advocates.

Join ISEA on Thursday, February 25th at 1 PM to learn about solar grazing!

Lexie and Trent will introduce solar grazing to solar firms working in the Central Midwest. Solar grazing is the practice of managing vegetation at ground mounted PV sites with livestock.

Learn about:

  • Compatibility with other types of vegetation management, risks, insurance, costs, and other fundamentals.
  • Services that ASGA has available to support solar firms with vegetation management questions, agrivoltaics integration, and more.
