Solar energy development is expanding nationwide, which requires counties to address how and where it occurs locally. Through best-practice guidance and real-life experiences, this session will demonstrate how county elected officials and planners can successfully balance agricultural preservation with private property rights to best integrate community & utility-scale solar development in their county. This session will address common community concerns, as well as highlight the impacts and benefits of large-scale solar development from communities across the nation.
