Solar projects typically use less than 2% of county farmland but provide millions of dollars in benefits and tax revenue.

That's money that can be used to:

  • Invest in schools

  • Provide broadband internet

  • Support first responders

  • Fix roads or support local infrastructure

Because of payments made from solar and other renewable energy projects, some rural communities are able to provide highspeed internet access in places where there is none today.  This high speed access is vital as schools and businesses increasingly rely heavily on remote learning and work from home.
