There has been much discussion of the four potential solar farms planned for Hopkins County, but mostly during School Board meetings and at the County level. KSST News would like to know what you think of these projects, by having you vote in our poll below.
Although land owners leasing their land to these huge projects are certainly in favor of the projects, their neighbors are concerned about the projects taking a toll on wildlife, the environment, and our county roads.
Tax implications are not yet known, as each company proposing a project has asked for huge tax breaks on their projects. All of the requests have been granted, but it is still unclear how much additional taxes could be realized if and when any of these projects are built.
