Neighbors Welcome, Fight Massive New Solar Farm In Northern Virginia : NPR

From the article:

The heart of the solar resistance is in a gated community called Fawn Lake, built around a golf course and man-made lake.

“I mean we live at a resort, essentially,” says Dave Walsh, one of the many Fawn Lake residents organizing against the planned solar farm. One corner of the massive project would butt up against the back of the gated community. Walsh says he supports solar, in theory, but not here.

“It’s not in keeping with the type of setting that people bought houses here [for] — they wanted to be out in the woods, essentially,” Walsh says.

Oh look, more rich assholes trying to block essential sustainable energy upgrades to the region because they live on a fucking golf course, and don’t want to look at solar panels on someone else’s land.

Apparently there will be a 100 foot buffer between the rich folks at the back of the gated rich community that will be planted with trees to obscure the view but that’s not enough for these assholes.
