Shoreham Solar Commons will help preserve the peaceful character of the community. The development of 120 additional homes – an alternative use of this site – would alter the nature of Shoreham by…

  • Creating more traffic
  • Generating greater noise and ambient light
  • Adding more kids to local schools
  • Degrading and diminishing local groundwater
  • Placing additional strain on town services and first responders

Development of this solar farm would avoid these adverse impacts while generating between $700,000 and $900,000 in tax revenue, up to ten times what the golf course currently generates.
