This is a good first step. It is too bad that they will now have to get permission from the state to build (because it will take up more than twenty acres)and the anti-solar group in CV will probably try to hold them up by filing frivolous appeals or lawsuits. The other solar developers in CV have also received permits from Lake County to build, but the anti solar/anti government/anti development/anti jobs whackos in CV are trying to hold them up. It will be interesting to see if this project ever gets built - I hope it does.

The concerned wackos of xmas valley will soon run out of steam (hot air). Their fearless leader Morris, the spider-man, has run out of web. For now, it's back to, creepy crawly.

They will still have to contend with Gary (solar farms don't fit the western lifestyle) Perkins. Unlike Marv, Gary has a partial brain in his head and he may have a few bucks to pay a lawyer to file an appeal. For some reason he thinks he gets to tell everyone in the county what they get to do with their property - I think the county is tired his lying ass too though.

I read an article about one of the Hande kids starting up a business/coffee trailer in anticipation of the solar development coming to North Lake County - I wonder if she knows that there are a bunch of whackjobs in the area that want to shut her down before she ever starts.
