Congrats to Canadian Solar that's quite an achievement
What worries me is the amount of land lost to these solar farms. .870 acres (352 hectare) or roughly 5.9 acres for every megawatt of power generated. This ground becomes totally denuded, possibly even covered to prevent weeds etcetera and control water run off. How is this better than strip mining?
Yes this project was constructed on an over an old strip mine therefore its negative impact is somewhat reduced but that is certainly not the case with all Solar farms.
We need to work on solar panels on roofs. No valuable land lost, reduced infrastructure, more cost effective.
