This toolkit is intended for state and municipal lawmakers, farmers, and researchers hoping to improve or better understand their community’s farmland solar policies. It identifies key areas of state law affecting how much and what kind of solar development occurs on farmland, as well as farmers’ access to clean energy. It provides examples of state laws and regulations in a variety of states that have enacted smart farmland solar policies, which can provide a useful starting point for crafting solar regulations that work for your state and community.
