When planning for a solar project site with native vegetation (including naturalized, non-invasive species), there are several variables site managers should consider. While the clearance between the lowest edge of a solar panel and the ground is a primary consideration when crafting a mix of native seeds for the site, managers should also look at these steps when designing, constructing, and planning their pollinator- friendly solar sites. Some vegetation species in this guide are not native to the Midwest Region, but are still listed because of their value to pollinators, like honeybees.
