9 Most Common Environmental Risks to Avoid for Solar Energy Development

Vegard J. Løwe - Co-Founder & CFO/COO

October 3rd, 2022

Background

While solar energy is a renewable resource, its generation is not without environmental impacts. Though utility-scale solar facilities do not generate the air or water pollution typical of other large-scale fossil-fuel power production facilities, impacts on wildlife habitat and stormwater management can be significant due to the larger scale of these uses and the resulting extent of land disturbance. The location of sites, the arrangement of panels within the site, and the ongoing management of the site are important in the mitigation of such impacts.
