    FAQ's

    It is perfectly safe for sheep to graze in the same field as solar panels, and in some cases, it can even increase productivity as fields can be multifunctional. Larger forms of livestock, such as cows and goats, should not be kept amongst solar panel systems, however, due to their size.

    For some it may be preferable to prevent sheep’s direct access to solar power systems for greater protection of both the animal and system. Sheep guards can be utilised for this purpose.

    Studies surrounding the safety of solar power systems have shown there is minimal risk of leaching from the materials used for these systems into the soil. A solar panel is generally made from silicon, which is not a harmful substance if it were to leak into the ground; the framing for these systems is made from steel or aluminium, which are moreover safe materials to use within the ground.
