Like other types of farms, a solar farm produces a product that people need. In this case, rows of solar panels produce electricity, which powers places like homes, businesses, schools, and hospitals through the electrical grid. The solar panels are mounted on racking with smart solar trackers that rotate slowly throughout the day, following the sun to maximize solar energy production. These trackers also protect the panels from hailstorms and prevent snow buildup. The land beneath and around the panels is planted with specially selected flowers and grasses to benefit the local environment.
