We are beekeepers in Minnesota (Bolton Bees) who believe in promoting the collaboration between solar energy, pollinator habitat, and local beekeeping. We are passionate about encouraging the creation of new foraging habitat under and around ground-mounted solar panels for a wide variety of pollinators, birds, and other wildlife.
Our company has successfully formed contracts with solar developers and with companies who purchase solar energy. We get paid for apiary placement and for creating custom jars for the solar companies and/or subscribers. We feel that our model is readily replicable and that interest in Solar Honey results in thousand of additional acres of Pollinator-Friendly Habitat.
