How many people will work on the solar farm to operate it?
Generally, up to five full-time employees on split shifts to clean solar panels and run the solar farms.
Does a solar farm divert existing water resources?
No, operations use a minimal amount of water, with total usage (for panel washing and domestic use) typically expected to be much less than 8 acre-feet per year. The agricultural water associated with the land will be returned to your district’s water allocation pool.
Will roads have to be built to/from the solar farm?
Not usually. 8minute does everything it can to use existing roads and pathways.
