Highlights on current projects and partners
Solar-powered farming and the Arizona Sustainability Alliance
Maya’s Farm is a pioneer in the sustainability world. We partnered with ASU and AZSA on an agrivoltaics project aiming to power our facilities and increase land efficiency. Agrivoltaics (or agrovoltaics) is the technique that uses the same land for both agricultural and energy generation purposes. AZSA will provide the necessary resources to install the solar panels and the battery storage system. We are thrilled to be a key partner on this project that will allow for research and education on sustainable agriculture and renewable energy.
