Heidi Marciniak started this petition to State Senator Robert G. Ortt

In the wake of solar energy being the hot new money-making trend, what will happen to agriculture? How much of our landscape will now be nothing but solar panels as far as the eye can see? 

While at a zoning board meeting we were told that the laws for New York state are simply too new and/or too vague to limit the installation of solar "farms". Further, the same goes for local law. So, instead of making sure laws are set in stone to protect residents and nature, local lawmakers are going ahead and giving a "thumbs up" to solar energy companies and letting them install solar "farms" without even knowing what the consequences or long-term effects may  be. Before we know it, there are going to be solar "farms" everywhere, once the floodgates open! 

This needs to be stopped before it gets started! There should be concrete laws and the zoning guidelines should be specific, and further, upheld. These solar "farms" are now asking towns to let them build directly next to residences! It is getting out of hand. These solar "farms" are going to start replacing much of our agriculture. What will happen to food availability and/or prices? We need to think about what we are giving up in the name of saving a bit of money! 

I am asking for residents to band together.Why are we allowing these monstrosities to go next to our homes? I feel that our wonderful villages are going to be completely surrounded by these solar "farms" if we don't ask the lawmakers to make better laws regarding this!
