After COVID-19, Here Comes More & Better Farming With Solar Panels
Photovoltaic panel are growing on farmland like mushrooms after the rainfall, yet there's no such point as a complimentary. There goes the food supply if also lots of solar panels change also much cropland. Nevertheless, farmers are starting to discover just how to do their farming within solar arrays, and also in a brand-new eco-friendly twofer, solar arrays can in fact aid press the regenerative farming motion right into the mainstream.

The blackest black for more efficient solar cells
MIT scientists claim to have created a material 10 times more black than anything witnessed to date. It is said to be able to absorb more than 99.96% of incoming light and reflect 10 times less light than other superblack materials. The invention may be interesting for the development of black silicon PV technology and carbon nanotube-based solar cells.
