Stop Big Solar - Protect Delaware Agricultural Conservation Lands
As a long time Smyrna resident and property owner adjacent to the proposed area to be developed into a massive Solar Complex. I believe the community should be aware of the injustice that Free Point Solar is about to commit against law abiding property owners in this agricultural conservation district if Levy Court allows it.
Back in 1992, Kent County Levy Court made into law the Coastal Heritage Greenway Act. This law restricts development in this area east of Smyrna protecting the agricultural lands and wildlife habitat.
Based on Kent County law, this solar complex violates the following regulations for building in a Conservation District.
1, Commercial and industrial manufacturing - not permitted
Solar complex would cover 260 acres manufacturing 60 cycle AC electricity.
2. Environmental and Health Risks - not permitted
Solar complex would expose lead, cadmium, and high voltage radiation to the surrounding community.
3. Building structures not in character with the surrounding area - not permitted
Solar complex is industrial and not in character with the agricultural and wetland surroundings.
Please sign and share this petition in opposition to Free Point Solar constructing a solar complex in an agricultural conservation district. Your signature will help save this Smyrna, Delaware farmland and wildlife habitat from being destroyed. Levy Court will be voting on this proposal January 25th @ 7:00pm We appreciate your support.
