Sunshine into electricity
Solar panels convert sunshine into electricity. Northwestern Pennsylvania has some of the lowest levels of daily average sunshine found anywhere in the United States. Solar projects built here make no sense unless developers don’t care about sunshine or electricity.
Solar projects into money
Tax incentives convert solar projects into money. Tax incentives shine down everywhere, everyday. Where you are doesn’t matter. Sunshine isn’t important.
The availability of financial and other incentives for solar energy are major factors that influence where solar energy systems are installed.

This is not about solar energy
Birch Creek Development wants your tax dollars. That’s why they’re here. It’s a simple plan. Cut down trees, throw up solar panels and get out of town. They get tax credits, you get your trees cut down and your countryside littered with industrial sized, solar powered lawn ornaments.
Do you think that’s a good idea?
