Solar Farms: The Letter & Photo the Shropshire Star Wouldn’t Publish

Last week one of our executive members wrote a personal letter to the Shropshire Star, who chose not to publish it.  He also sent a photo they might care to use showing how solar farms can continue existing farming practice whilst also providing almost zero carbon electricity.  Unlike the Shropshire Star, we do think it worth publishing,  so here ...
