By The Randolph Solar Development Team

With development projects of any size, the impact on existing wildlife habitats must be taken into consideration during planning, permitting and project construction. Unlike some developments that result in longstanding buildings or damage to a property, solar projects can coexist with existing wildlife habitats and preserve the rural nature of a site for the project’s lifespan.

Any wetlands, bottomlands, or tributaries on the project site will remain untouched, and wildlife corridors are created between sections of panels to allow for the free flow of animals into and out of the project site.

Solar projects can also diversify local wildlife habitats through maintenance of native grasses. Importantly, any properties that have been used for active farming would see a drastic reduction in fertilizers and pesticides, improving the population of pollinators, wildflowers, and other organic specifics of plants, insects and animals that contribute to diversity.

Randolph Solar is dedicated to working with landowners, county officials, and Charlotte County residents to ensure we protect, preserve, and improve the native habitat of wildlife to the greatest extent possible.
