The present paper aims to document and identify some possible modular hortivoltaic solutions, which efficiently combine horticultural production with the generation of photovoltaic electricity on smaller spaces than usual in agrivoltaic applications. This initiative involves the development of structures to support photovoltaic panels, under which horticultural species can be grown in containers of different sizes and whose irrigation is carried out in a significant proportion with the help of rainwater collected from the surface of photovoltaic panels. At the same time, an assessment will be made of the potential of green energy generated by the photovoltaic panel modules with the presentation of some species that can be cultivated for utilitarian and ornamental purposes. The solutions resulting from the synergy generated by the combination of photovoltaic panels - green roofs will be able to be generalized and recommended in a wide range of situations, thus responding to the current needs of resource reuse and combating climate change.
