Solar is good, but each site needs to be net gain, not net loss

I do not want to see us decimating our biodiversity even further, beautiful countryside and prime agricultural land. Use brown sites!

I am supporting the farmers who are now going to have to look after the whole of the U. K. food wise. So many other places to accommodate solar panels but definitely NOT in our green agricultural fields.

There are tens of thousands of acres of industrial estates covered in huge warehouses which are set to increase because of the surge in online shopping/Brexit. Why isn't the Govt incentivising companies/councils to get solar technology on these brownfield sites?!!!

Complicated debate - low carbon energy or local food production after loss of European supplies. We all need to reduce carbon usage, which involves reducing food miles as well as carbon-based energy sources. The outcome should reflect the present land usage and possible usage for low carbon food supplies, most is under used, used for grazing and has become unsustainable in competition corporate food production elsewhere.

Leave farmland alone. Ffs there won't be any land left soon that's any good for animals

As a recipient of solar energy from my roof panels for some years I fully understand the benefit of that investment but I am totally against the idea of using greenfield sites, precious countryside and wildlife habitats already threatened with devastating clearance for HS2 and building projects. In addition existing farmland should be retained for growing our own agricultural produce rather than importing from other countries and in so doing putting people out of work. Far better to be installing solar panels on homes and business premises and brownfield sites to reduce their fuel consumption and adding to carbon emissions.
