Media highlight UMaine research about using solar panels in wild blueberry fields
Energy News Network and Axios, featured University of Maine research about how mounting solar panels in wild blueberry patches will affect income and production. “Our goal is to understand the impact of construction — how will blueberries react to being driven over? Anecdotally, the careful treatment definitely recovered faster in terms of blueberry cover. But they all recovered quite well,” said Lily Calderwood, assistant professor of horticulture and wild blueberry specialist at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. The Maine Monitor, Renewable Energy World, Canary Media shared the report.
