Some Hoosier Farmers Choose to Lease Some of the Land for Solar - Their Right as Private Property Owners.

Solar Bans Take that Right Away​​

Farmers receive a sustainable income from renewable energy projects that is not dependent on weather, federal trade policies or global grain prices.

Only a small portion of farmland in a county is used for solar projects, while providing million of dollars in benefits to the county.

Farmers can let their land used for solar rest and recover, so it can be returned to crop farming when the solar panels are removed.
