I strongly oppose the Mallard Pass Solar project for a number of reasons: The construction process will be very destructive and disruptive to the local environment and inhabitants. The proposed array is huge and will impact wildlife and local communities negatively. Agricultural land will be taken out of food production. it will be years before there is any net carbon saving once construction costs and installation costs are accounted for. Local tourism is likely to be affected. Solar panel production in may involve slave labour.
