LETTER: Clear thought needed on solar farm debate

To deny PowerVault’s proposed solar farm access to horticultural land is to deny the agricultural component of the project. 

To pass a law to prohibit this type of intergated activity on horticultural land is seriously short-sighted. 

Having lived next to my own stand alone solar plant on a farm for 20 years, I can assure the detractors there are no adverse health effects. I read that the solar farm will have a green visual barrier for the neighbours. What’s the problem?
