Taking farmland out of production
- Utility-Scale Solar provides an economic basis to stop this urban-type development into rural areas.
- Our rolling ground, thinner layer of topsoil, and steeper side slopes break up our field sizes. These smaller fileds prevents Mason County from achieving the economies of scale typical in the “corn belt.”
- Because solar will help reduce corn and soybean produciton acres, solar protects top soil and reduces watershed polution.
- It’s important to understand that solar is not a threat to agricultural activity, but rather a harmonious development that can assist the farming community.
