Help us protect agricultural-forestal zoned land from large, industrial-scale solar developments
What is really driving industrial scale solar? Tax XXX and Green Credits from "Big Tech".
Solar waste is toxic. You thought the plastic landfills were bad; you wait for solar waste landfills.
By 2050, the International Renewable Energy Agency projects that up to 78 million metric tons of solar panels will have reached the end of their life, and that the world will be generating about 6 million metric tons of new solar e-waste annually.
California, like many states, has a problem with a rapid influx of end-of-life solar panels, despite that a law (SB 489) passed five years ago to help facilitate collection and processing of these materials. And over 90 percent of installers do not consult with their customers on end-of-life management.
