Can agricultural activities continue?

The solar panels within Goorambat Solar Farm will be spaced 8 to 10m apart, which means they will only cover about half of the available land. As well as acting as firebreaks and maintenance tracks, these large gaps between the solar panels (not to mention the 2m of space beneath them) can be put to agricultural uses such as sheep grazing. This practice has become commonplace globally, with sheep thriving in the sheltered conditions.
