    They do. Maybe not where you live, but PG&E in northern California offers a choice.

    you can use land for multiple purposes at the same time. just because you have a farm doesn't mean that land cannot also be used for wind and solar power at the same time.

    And farmers are experimenting with growing cooler weather crops in the partial shade of the solar panels in the summer.

    It takes away land food production. It is also causing health problems

    A local community has installed a solar system with micro wind turbines mounted on the back of the solar array. The system takes up little space, lives in harmony with cows, has reduced their utility bills by 75%, and provides constant power during outages.
