Solar Sucks
#1
Stupid solar credits just killed one of the biggest and oldest hunt clubs in RVA. Five Forks just got noticed the lease on the Powhatan Property they have held for 40+ years won't be renewed for 19/20. Grrrr..... So much for one of the best waterfowl swamps in central VA. 500 + acres of prime walkable swamp off the hunting grid now and onto the utility grid. They are building a waste of space solar farm. Dominion gets some sort of BS taxpayer funded credit offsets for "green" power. Sure.... let's knock down 1500 acres of 100 year hardwood and pine and replace it with a couple hundred acres of chinese bird fryers. It makes great enviromental sense.

Environmentalists have never been about preservation or conservation. Its always been about restricting other’s access to public lands. Under the guise of protecting the environment, they really use their activism as ruse for their desire to limit hunting, fishing, and outdoor access.

yes, but i think it's about limiting mankind. many think the less people, the less negative impact on the earth. it all comes down to 'earth worship' rather than 'God worship'. they've got it backwards, they worship the creation rather than the Creator. God told Adam and Eve (and us by default) to populate and fill the earth (for His glory). the planet is a gift from God that we are to use it and take care of.

furthermore, the taking of an animal's life reminds us of God's salvation plan. God's only son, Jesus, was sacrificed on a cross--He died so that those that ask for forgiveness for their sins and place their faith in Him will live. Every time we get hungry, hunt, and eat, an animal dies so that we can live. We should remember God's provision and His offer of forgiveness and salvation through faith in Christ every time we hunt, kill, fish, and eat. A death is what is required for us to live.

Agreed- Under the umbrella of socialism, you’ll find environmentalism is a substitute for the adherence to faith.

Happened here in Surry. We lost a 1000 acre lease that was attached to another 3000 acres that's been hunted by our club for almost 100 years. All gone in the name of public perception. No reality because it can't produce enough megawatts to keep a nice neighborhood lit, IF the sun is out that day.

Yep... that is exactly what irks me about it. These solar facilities have little to do with what is good for the environment/taxpayer/customer and everything to do with Utility bottom lines/tax shell games/public perceptions. I could have swallowed it going to some sort of residential development or other commercial use but to lose it to a bs pet political project is crap.

On a positive it took me about 6 hours to find a new club. Not as much swamp but a little of everything so can't complain too much. Thank god for good friends and networking over the years.

Can't they build the solar farm high enough off the ground to allow a limited hunt with some rules (All shooting done from stands, no shooting toward panels or power transformers, snare trapping allowed, etc.)?
