Residents of LaPorte County are expressing worries over a proposed 26-hundred acre solar farm in Kankakee Township.
RWE Clean Energy officials say the 700-million-dollar investment over 35 years will help provide the area with clean power. They say the benefits include lower taxes, job creation, and increased energy production.
Residents, however, say the negatives including the loss of farmland, the produced noise, traffic impact are more important.
RWE officials say this proposal is still very new and they will continue to hear concerns and engage with the community on the project.

To put it into perspective, this is enough farmland to feed about 2600 people per year. Note that the soil will likely be contaminated from the toxic materials in the solar panels when they stop working and are ripped out in 10 years.
