Abstract

The use of photovoltaic (PV) electricity in modern agriculture has shown its advantages since the 1970s when it was possible to obtain a substantial green energy without the pollution by burning fossil fuels (coal, oil or natural gas) or the threaten of nuclear accident. Due to the price descent of the PV system, some new applications are becoming economically attractive, like the combination of PV and agriculture. Meanwhile, the use of agricultural soils contributes to making photovoltaic a low-cost energy generation source. Briefly, this combination can be a standby power or a direct injection to grid that is applied in a wide range of modern farming: irrigation, greenhouses and agricultural machinery. Therefore, the main aim of this study is to introduce these various applications of photovoltaics in modern agriculture.
