600 acres sounds like a bunch. Wonder how many houses it will provide electricity to.

I would think the hunting would stay pretty good on your side. Once the panels are installed the land is relatively undisturbed and is a decent place for wildlife.

Your land is going to suddenly become a lot more valuable if the energy company decides they want to put more panels in. I know people that have signed 25 year leases to put their farms in solar panels at $1500 an acre.

Solar panels = huge eyesore, second only to those gawd-awful wind farms.

I would pee on myself with happiness to see solar panels instead of what we get on empty land. Our Local politicians conspire with developers to build giant ghettoplex apartment buildings or trailer parks to flood the voter rolls in certain districts.

tup..like I said..beats housing..but not what I envisioned there....was great when they farmed it and let us run it ...huge powerlines run thru it is why it got put there...but the powerline road was a grea path to run the mule on til we got to the spot to hunt......now....sigh.....
