Wild blueberry specialist Calderwood interviewed on dual usage solar and blueberry farm

The Maine Monitor interviewed University of Maine Cooperative Extension blueberry specialist Lily Calderwood on a dual-use solar and blueberry farm in Rockport. Calderwood, also an assistant professor of horticulture, made the preliminary conclusion that the way the solar array is configured makes farming difficult and constricts blueberry production. After analyzing the 2022 growing season, Calderwood claimed that the blueberry bushes will likely not produce enough to turn a profit.
