Our group of concerned citizens, recently organized as a 501(c)(4)-status pending IRS approval, is a grassroots movement that grew out of what we saw was the destruction of the rural Virginia landscape. Our goal is to educate the public on the negative impact of utility-scale solar on farmlands, woodlands, and the surrounding communities. We promote the responsible use of solar – meaning smaller-scale rural or larger-scale urban/industrial projects, roof-top installations, and installations that do not result in the loss of significant farmlands, woodlands, and wildlife habitat.
Our Approach and Point of View
We support the use of renewable energy on a non-industrial scale. This includes residential solar, small-scale wind, and run-of-river or storage hydro. We do not support large government subsidies for industrial-scale projects that destroy miles of habitat and are a visual blight on the land.
