ABOUT

The Strata Innovation Award Competition challenges students and faculty from accredited colleges and universities in the Southeast United States to develop scalable solutions for the co-location of solar energy production and agriculture. APV is an emerging technology that can help reduce competition for land, provide climate-smart solutions to improving land productivity, crop water-use efficiency, profitability, and economic resilience of agriculture.

We are looking to reward final-stage solutions and technologies, i.e. those that have achieved proof of concept.
