NC Town Rejects Solar Farm Because They ‘Suck Up All The Energy From The Sun’ | Michael Stone
A town in North Carolina has rejected a proposal for a solar farm after residents expressed fear and distrust of solar panels.
After numerous members of the public in Woodland, North Carolina, expressed their fear and mistrust of a proposal to allow Strata Solar Company to build a solar farm off Highway 258, the Woodland Town Council rejected a proposal to rezone a section of land, essentially denying approval of the solar farm.
During the public comment period preceding the rezoning vote that would allow for the solar farm, citizens expressed distrust and fear of the solar panels.
One resident, Bobby Mann, said that businesses would stop going to Woodland, and the community would suffer as a result, because the solar farms would suck up all the energy from the sun, according to the Roanoke-Chowan News Herald.
Ignorance is pitiful.
