Commercial Solar Farming

    Has anyone dealt with solar farming in rural areas or near historic districts, whether they be local or National Register?  We are not opposed to farmers using solar for their personal use, but are referring to the large commercial fields of solar panels.

    Comments greatly appreciated.

    Dorchester County, Maryland has been dealing with permits for large commercial solar farms, one across the road from the East New Market Historic District.  You might contact Mayor Caroline Cline of ENM for details on this issue.  I believe the solar company withdrew the permit because of restrictions placed on them by the County Council.
