This workshop will explain the technology, construction, regulations, and economic considerations when planning for utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems that are becoming commonplace across the state. In addition to providing an understanding of the development and operation of these solar electricity generating facilities, the presentation will explore what is known about the various impacts of these systems on the community and the environment. Specifically, common questions about the legal/regulatory issues tied to PV panel toxicity, electromagnetic fields (EMF)/radiation, economic impacts, system decommissioning, and more will be covered. Additionally, the characteristics that make a site most suitable for solar will be provided as well as an overview of solar land leases.
