  1. The author is mixing issues. The solar farm grant proposal is one, the new net metering the other. Not a question of whether solar belongs on “roofs” or “parks;” it should be both! Yes, there is a lessening of the payback to rooftop solar owners under the new metering policy but let’s consider why residents install solar. Is it the dollars – and they do save considerably on their monthly bill – or the satisfaction of knowing they’re doing something to alleviate climate change?

    Likewise, voting “yes” on the Town’s proposal for a solar farm in a small, little-used, corner of Bohn Park provides the rest of us without rooftop solar some satisfaction that we’re moving in the right direction on renewable energy.
