RE: Proposed solar farm at Brewongle.

At the recent meeting with Photon Energy, it was explained that the land for the proposed solar farm would continue to be grazed. Photographs were displayed demonstrating that the visual impact would be minimal, if at all. 

Enough electricity to power 46,000 homes, saving 300,000 tons of CO2 and the equivalent of taking 65,000 cars off the road and creating local jobs at practically no environmental cost or impact would, to most people, be absolutely wonderful.  

The landowners should be applauded for their foresight.
