Shortly after the Save Dike From Solar Group planned a meeting of their supporters, the French Solar Company, Engie, announced that they will be hosting a Virtual Town Hall Presentation on March 22nd at 6 pm. The online-only meeting will be a struggle for a lot of Dike residents as many do not have sufficient internet service to support the Zoom meeting. In their announcement, the local project known as Hopkins Energy, LLC, has said that the virtual meeting, “will be an opportunity for neighbors to ask questions and learn more about the project.” If this actually happens, some Dike residents say that it will be completely different than their previous experience with this solar company as well as the previous German company that was in charge of the project. Residents have felt neglected in getting information from either of these companies in the past, and have felt like decisions have been made without their consent or approval.

For those that cannot access the meeting, Engie is working with Hopkins County to provide the Hopkins County Civic Center as a location interested parties can go and access the meeting as well as ask questions during the Virtual Town Hall Presentation.
