Our vision

Jack’s Solar Garden is a family owned social enterprise doing more with our family farm for the betterment of our community. Through our partnerships with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Colorado State University, and the University of Arizona, Jack’s Solar Garden will put valuable research into the public sphere on co-locating solar panels with agriculture – called agrivoltaics. Partnering with Sprout City Farms enables the cultivation of crops at Jack’s Solar Garden to put food back into our community while training young farmers on agrivoltaic techniques.

As the first, but not last, of our kind, Jack’s Solar Garden is educating the next generation through regular school tours under our solar panels via the Colorado Agrivoltaic Learning Center. Farmers, government officials, and the public are invited to tour our premises to help disseminate the possibilities agrivoltaics can offer our society.

With the innovativeness and openness we offer, we hope to inspire our community to support local farmers as they embark on creative paths to better our community with locally produced foods and solar power.

Supporting our neighbors

2% of our electricity will be donated to low-income households through the Boulder County Housing Authority to enable ~10 homes to receive free electricity bill credits for the next 20 years.

Supporting our bees

Audubon Rockies will establish their largest Habitat Hero, a large pollinator habitat of 1,800+ shrubs, bushes, and trees, around the perimeter of our solar array to help feed the local birds and bees.


Promoting local artists

An annual stipend will be available to local artists to illustrate the significance of our project to our community.
