Community Solar
Farmers Powering Communities will advance community scale solar projects of 25 to 50 acres to provide green energy to the two-thirds of Americans, including many low and moderate income families, who don’t have access to rooftop solar. The goal is to create 500MW of community solar capacity in five years.

Our upcoming webinars illustrate the highlights of our partnership and what it means for the future of agriculture in your state.

Farm Viability
In September 2022, American Farmland Trust (AFT), Edelen Renewables, and Arcadia launched a partnership to combat climate change by advancing Smart SolarSM. The project, Farmers Powering Communities, aims to protect America’s most productive farmland and ranchland while expanding equitable access to renewable energy. Adding to the team’s combined prowess, Aggreko Energy Transition Solutions (AETS) joined as a strategic partner in May 2023, further strengthening the initiative’s capacity to make significant strides in the renewable energy sector.
