Another topic that was brought up was called the “Good Neighbor agreement” payment. When asked if there were any strings attached, they said, yes, you can no longer fight against industrial solar coming into North Beaver Township (NBT). It was quickly pointed out that this is essentially “hush money” but the reps responded it was not, and that those against it may call it hush money, but they didn’t feel it was.
If it isn’t hush money, then why are they making you sign an agreement not to fight against them? This doesn’t sound like it is for any inconveniences. Remember, they mentioned their goal is to get 50% to approve of industrial solar, so what do you think this “so called” money is for?
Someone mentioned they offered $25,000…Do the math! This means you will live with an eyesore, inconveniences, decrease in property value, and possible noise pollution for the next 30 years and in return get only $833 a year that you have to pay taxes on.
