One source ( we will call him Jeff) said that the solar company seemed shocked that they were not welcomed into the community last summer and how much anti-solar there was. The solar company insinuated that because the community was not welcoming them, that they re-evaluated their original project and now it is a completely new project. It is cut down by ½ the size from before. Jeff said that they thought it odd they didn't mention how many acres they were going to put solar panels on and he noticed they failed to mention that the many solar leases were expiring (Jeff had checked the information on Lawrence County that many of the leases would be expiring soon). He said the solar company offered no maps so he would know where they were proposing to go. They offered nothing. The solar company, Jeff said, later mentioned they had learned they couldn't put solar on much of the original acres. “It does not work on rolling hills.”
People that fought hard against solar before, did stop them. But it looks like the solar company is changing their tactics and still trying to put industrial solar on our farmlands.
Tomorrow, another source tells us how the solar company claims they want to retain the communities agriculture spirit.
