Development Committee Approved Moratorium on Solar Farms

The Development Committee of the Fayette County Commission met on Monday, February 12, 2024.   A resident in the audience who lives on Payne Road stated he saw someone surveying near his property and found out it is for a 830 acre solar farm. He is very concerned about this and his property values. Chairman Rob Sills stated we should set a moratorium on solar farms and then see how to stop them. A motion was made for a one year moratorium and it passed. This goes to the full commission on February 27th.

    In my opinion, neither solar nor wind are viable methods for generating commercial power. These may suffice for individual uses at home or on the farm but, the current technology does not reliably supply the mega-watts of power needed for our economy and way of life. What small amount of inconsistent power is supplied comes by using up “mega-acres” of arable land, and leaving behind mega-tons of plastic, metal, and semiconductors in its wake. These all add to the drain on the national resources they were supposed to be saving: similar to California’s ban on charging-up their electric cars for lack of capacity.
