Starlight, a company within the NextEnergy Group focused on renewable asset development globally, has unveiled an agri-eco-voltaics project in Italy.
Agri-eco-voltaics is the process of combining solar photovoltaic systems with modern-day sustainable agriculture and territorial requalification. It has the potential to tackle some of the world’s fundamental future economic and social challenges while maximizing the efficiency of land use.
Known as Land of the Sun, the project has been specifically developed for Giugliano in Campania in the northwestern area of the province of Naples.

The project includes the construction and operation of an agri-voltaics plant, producing energy f
