That's what I have heard too.
They're trying to erect a solar farm on the North side of my town. 1000 some acres. They keep saying they are going to get started on it soon. I don't know if they got it though or not but a bunch of landowners were trying to get the solar company to put money into escrow to cleanup the stuff if they go broke or whenever they're done with the panels so the landowner isn't shouldered with the burden of cleaning it up. We've had papers show up in the mail wanting us to lease our land to a solar company and they got filed in the trash.
One thing I will say about the windmills is at least you can still work the ground around the windmill. Solar farm you can't do squat with that land with all that sitting on it.
I get a kick out of people pushing solar around here. We are way North of the effective line around here. To top it off. This is Michigan. Those of you that have never been here from Mid November till Middle to the end of March. Its like living in a armpit. Its wet, cool or cold and cloudy almost all the time. Those Lakes that surround us produce clouds whenever cold air blows over the water ( Or lake effect snow if the wind is strong enough or cold enough). You can have months here where you might only see 12 to maybe 20% possible sunshine in a single month. Now before someone jumps on my case about they can still produce energy on a cloudy day. That may be. But how economical and efficient are they in these conditions and mind you, you have months of this to deal with.
