Responsible Solar Citizens of Mount Joy Township, PA Petition Against Solar Farm

Citizens Seek Delay

A citizens group-- Responsible Solar Citizens of Mount Joy Township in Pennsylvania-- has posted an online petition for residents to sign asking for a 90 day delay in its consideration to allow more time for a thorough review.

The group pointed out only 3 weeks notice was given between two major holidays on the hearing.

The group says the area proposed for the project is prime farmland, historic homes, and resident property values are all threatened by this project.  Abundant wildlife including deer and eagles would also be harmed, including the Alloway Creek Watershed that buffers stormwater runoff to the Chesapeake Bay.

They said the energy created by this project will be powering Philadelphia and will not benefit local electricity rates in the county and very few local jobs would be created.

The group points out this is one of several solar farms being planned for Adams County.
