A global energy company is looking to build a solar farm across 800 acres in Lebanon County, but dozens of people who live nearby are opposed to the plan.
"More than 100 people showed up Wednesday night arguing the North Anville Township Board of Supervisors should not approve a conditional use application that would change the landscape of their community.
'If you’re putting solar panels there it totally changes the looks of the land,' Harvey Miller said.
'We’ll be looking directly into two acres of battery storage system, a two-acre, according to the testimony last night, about approximately a two-acre substation,' Grady Summers said. 'We know that 61% of the land is prime agricultural land and taking it out of agriculture production would be both against what is advised in the PAMPC and the regional plan.'"
