American Town Reject Solar Panels Because They “Suck up All The Suns Energy”

A US town has rejected a proposal for a solar farm following public concerns.

Members of the public in Woodland, North Carolina, expressed their fear and mistrust at the proposal to allow Strata Solar Company to build a solar farm off Highway 258.

The area around Woodland is a popular choice because it has an electrical substation allowing the panels to be hooked up to the national grid.
A spokesperson for Strata told the meeting: “There are no negative impacts. A solar farm is a wonderful use for a property like this.”

They added: “The panels don’t draw additional sunlight.”

The council voted three to one against rezoning the land and later voted for a moratorium on future solar farms.

Speaking after the COP-21 summit on climate change in Paris pledged to limit global warming below the threshold of 2°c, Pope Francis said the plan will require “a concerted and generous commitment” from everyone.

Experts said a move towards renewable power, with investment in wind and solar energy, will be required to cut down on emissions.
