Had to share that the solar company keep saying that there will be 2 years of temporary jobs for the area. Meaning there will be 2 years of construction. This neighbor shared what they hear from the solar fields being installed 2 MILES AWAY! https://www.facebook.com/reel/660419866148897
Has anything changed? It still looks like landowners still have not renew their leases. We expected the solar company: made excuses of where they have been, introduced new ideas to get them excited, followed up with more empty promises to get them to renew their leases. BEWARE that these landowners potentially will be signing away their land rights and will have no access or say what goes on behind the fence of their land they leased for the next 40 YEARS.
What will happen next:
Buy more advertising to gain more support for the solar project! BEWARE that numbers used in this advertising are not from an independent study. The numbers generated are from a company they hired to use data they provided. Demand an independent job loss impact study over the next 40 years due to this solar project.
Buy more influence! Watch to see if the solar company is going to throw more money around in yearly payments to potentially the: school, fire department, landowners, county, township, sponsorships and giveaways. BEWARE that if this project is so great, why do they have to buy influence?
Targeting you! Be expecting more phone surveys with slanted questions towards only their agenda! BEWARE that the questions do not give you the full picture and you can only give yes or no answers
Targeting our representatives! These solar salesmen will be using all this data, promises of money generated, bought influence, promises of jobs to convince our representatives to pave the road for them to come in. BEWARE that if we don’t contact them and let them know where you stand that our reps may actually start to pave the road and make it easier for them to come in.
This month, contact Dan Vogler with your opinion.
Have you seen all the new solar advertisements popping up during the month of June? Did you also notice that the solar company is still using their own paid reports which promises of millions of dollars to the area? Insist that our county and state need to do their own independent studies on how industrial solar will affect our area.
Voice your opinion with our Chairman Lawerence County Commissioner Dan Vogler that industrial solar does not belong on farmland
