In addition to providing an understanding of the development and operation of these solar electricity generating facilities, Mr. Cleveland will explore what is known about the various impacts of these systems on the community and the environment. Specifically, Mr. Cleveland will address common questions about PV panel toxicity, EMF/radiation, economic impacts, system decommissioning, and more. Additionally, Mr. Cleveland will discuss the characteristics that make a site are most suitable for solar and provide an overview of solar land leases.
