If I should post this in another location please let me know. None of them seemed appropriate.

Has anyone been contracted to keep hives at Solar Fields. A friend of mine is part owner of a commercial solar company and they are working on three projects in Connecticut. He approached me about putting hives on in the solar fields, he said they are contracting a sheep farmer as well to graze the space between the panels. I believe it has to do with getting a tax break and he mentioned something about a USDA proposal to get specific permits for the location. The specific location would have 37 acres of panels. He said that this is common practice in New York and New Jersey. I am just looking for some input from anyone who may be doing this.
