Short summary
Agrivoltaism is the association of agricultural and photovoltaic energy production on the same land area, coping with the increasing pressure on land use and water resources while delivering clean and renewable energy. This paper shows how to operate the tilting-angle solar panels tested above the cultivated plots to remedy the often unexplored rain redistribution issues, by which large parts of the plot are sheltered, whereas concentrated fluxes are redirected on a few locations.
