Various energy companies are proposing the largest solar facility in the midwest right here in Eastern Howard County. They want to cover 4-7 thousand acres of prime farmland with solar panels that are 15 ft high. The final acreage amount depends on what the companies are able to get passed. These solar panels would be surrounded by a large chain link fence and barbed wire. Many homes will be entangled in the proposed solar farm and completely surrounded. The panels contain toxic metals that can not be properly disposed of at the end of their life span. There is also concern with water shed contamination along with well water contamination in the event a a panel breaks. This land will sadly never be farmed again or produce food. We can not let this happen to our community. Please sign if you are against bringing big solar to Howard County as this will eventually spread into all areas of the county.
