Mount Vernon public hearing shows community divided over solar

How much harm can solar really cause?

More than you may think

Toxic Chemicals

Solar panels contain toxic chemicals such as: Cadmium selenide, Cadmium telluride, Lead, Silicone tetrachloride polyvinyl fluoride, and more. These chemicals are known to leach out of damaged or worn panels.

Fire Hazard

Solar panels are a fire hazard. Solar panel fires are extremely dangerous for firefighters to deal with due to the risk of electric shock, and inhaling the toxic fumes.

Eye Sore

Solar developments damage property values. Potential buyers are more likely to stay away from houses with industrial development views.

Water Damage

Solar developments may damage farm tiles and cause flooding and drainage issues.
