American Farmland Trust, guided by an expert advisory group, conducted statewide surveys of nearly 750 farmers, local government officials, land trusts and environmental organizations on the opportunities and challenges of solar on farmland in New York. AFT also convened four roundtables with solar developers to share research results and to develop recommendations. In this webinar, Samantha Levy, Mikaela Ruiz-Ramón, and Ethan Winter share findings from American Farmland Trust’s new report which lays out a smart solar siting framework along with recommendations to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the impacts of solar development on New York’s most productive farmland and farm communities.
