Solar plant Talayuela Solar in Cáceres, Spain an opportunity for biodiversity. Flowers bloom above even the panels and insects feed on nectar and pollen and partly collect floral resources to feed their larvae.
More than 400 sheep owned by Andrés Gallardo, a local farmer, are already grazing inside the plant, so that they act as natural weeding in the facility, avoiding the use of machinery and chemical products. At the same time, the animals benefit from natural, good quality pasture and feed.
In Cadiz Solar plant, the "Garcilla Bueyera" no longer only relies on livestock, but also on the panels while watching over the photovoltaic plants.

In Réunion creole, 'Bardzour' means breaking dawn. With total power of 9MWp, the project incorporates 8.4MWp of ground-based panels located in the no-man’s-land of the Detention Center in the village of Port, and 0.6MWp installed on 6,000m₂ of Agrinergie® greenhouses.
Protected from the vagaries of the weather, organic apricot trees are grown by a local farmer in the Agrinergie® greenhouses, in Château, France, and produce very high yields when compared to the habitual losses from this type of agriculture (up to 50% of the crop can be lost to bad weather each year).
