Green Valley Seed: Solar Farm Seed Expertise
· We have supplied seed to two different solar farms totaling 332,750 pounds of seed for 1,405 acres!
o Hardin Solar Farm Phases 1 & 2 – McGuffey, OH
o Water Strider Solar Farm – Nathalie, VA
· We have the capability to supply seed in either 50 pound bags or 1,000 pound super sacks, depending on the customer’s needs.
· We have worked extensively with Project Managers to ensure the correct species are planted at solar farms to eliminate long term maintenance costs and ensure an aesthetically pleasing site.
o Most of the time, revegetation plans for solar sites are written by Engineers, not Agronomists or Horticulturalists. We’ve worked with Project Managers to change those revegetation plans in order to ensure that the owner of the solar site meets their goals.
· Through experimentation and industry knowledge, we’ve developed the following seed mix for solar farms:
o Green Valley Premium Solar Array Mix
§ 35% Creeping Red Fescue
§ 25% Chewings Fescue
§ 25% Hard Fescue
§ 15% Sheep Fescue
o This seed mix produces unprecedented weed suppression and very low maintenance costs.
