Next Generation Vegetation Management

Our commitment to protecting the land on which our solar projects are built begins with proper vegetation management. Our permitting team prepares a Vegetation Management Plan (VMP) for all projects that complies with local regulations for content and seed mixes. We contract with prairie restoration specialists to prepare site-specific VMPs and typically have agency review of those plans for state permitting efforts (such as the USDA/NRCS or a local county weed office). Our VMPs also outline potential maintenance strategies that may be implemented (mowing, grazing, or haying), including different seed mixes to be utilized for the different maintenance strategies to retain flexibility for the operations team.

Several considerations are factored into our determination for the best vegetation management at our project sites, including but not limited to, native vegetation type and maturity, access to water resources, weather conditions, and soil health and make-up.

Native Pollinator Habitats

Worldwide, there are more than 350,000 pollinator species such as bees, butterflies, beetles, flies, wasps, and many other insects. Pollinator habitats consist of native shrubs, grasses and wildflowers which provide necessary food, water, shelter and space for these species to thrive. We develop pollinator habitats throughout our solar projects, determined by native plant species to specific geographic location. While pollinator habitats not only tend to be low maintenance and tolerant of drought-like conditions, they are also important to the health and continued growth of sustainable, generative, and regenerative flora ecosystems.

Did You Know?

In addition to the more commonly known pollinator species such as butterflies, bees and other insects, some mammals also act as pollinators. Examples include bats, lizards and birds.
