More fighting, no voting, over Six Flags Great Adventure solar project

Posted Tuesday, February 23, 2016 10:07 AM | Contributed by Jeff

With more than 24 hours of testimony in the books, the planning board's vote on a plan to cut down thousands of trees in favor of a solar farm on Six Flags Great Adventure won't come until next month. At the board's sixth hearing on the controversial solar farm from Six Flags and KDC Solar LLC, tensions between board members and residents started to flare over questions of procedure.

You know that these residents wouldn't care if they were putting up a strip mall or some apartments. That said, I don't think that they understand that denying Six Flags this permit could result in an expensive and long court battle.

If Six Flags needed a solar farm, it would have been built by now, or something like that.

I still suspect a conspiracy. Who has the most to lose if SF provides their own electricity?

The aliens below the Denver airport.

It takes great restraint sometimes to not reply to Tek. He tells me not to reply to his posts, and then he replies to my posts. Then he calls me a hypocrite. I don't even know what aliens below the Denver Airport means.

So the obviously answer I was going for here was the power company that the park buys energy from. They have the most to lose. I wonder if they have publicly commented on the proposed solar project. I wonder if they are influencing the negative publicity the project is receiving.

I say that if the park owns the land, they should be able to do with it what they want to do with it.

It was a joke, Travis. Not everything is a dig on you. But FYI, making posts starting with disclaimers that you're not responding (you've done that a few times and I ignored it)? Kind of a douche move.

Ultimately, I'd like to think we could be adults and contribute like actual adults in the community. Half the time you reply normally, other times you go balls out. You're the one that started to reply to me after idasked you not to. You're the one that put disclaimers up calling me out while still replying. I believe a member of the community already commented on you trying to have it both ways. Doesn't seem to have changed.

And as a 40something year old, talking about me knowing I'm here while not talking to me is childish.

You got it, Tek. I'm done with walking on eggshells around you, good buddy. :)

(Yawn) Anyway, I am really sorry that the topic went there again. Does anyone have anything to say about the power company supplying power to the park? Or anything at all about the solar thing. I don't even care anymore, really.

You never walked on egg shells, since you never stopped acknowledging me after I asked you to.

You'd be a lot happier if you weren't so uptight.

HAHA, Tekwardo! I've actually asked my doctor why I'm so happy all the time. He told me to drink a beer. I hope I didn't hurt your feelings or something.

Anyway, how about them solar panels?

The continual application of Chemtrails will soon make solar panels worthless.

Chem trails are old hat. It's more likely linked to CERN, Beyonce', and the Illuminati.

Every time I see another news article on this I picture the cast from I heart Huckabee's bickering about the "Save the Marsh!"

Resurrecting a slap-fight that's laid dormant for 24 hours is not restraint. Try harder.

I generally think of public utilities, especially power companies, as providing so much of their product that losing one customer is a drop in the bucket, even a large commercial customer like Great Adventure. Are they really that valuable a customer? Most of their equipment and many of their buildings sit idle for close to half of the year and, even when they are open for business, the same things sit idle for 10-12 hours a day. They would be far less important a customer than a 24 hour manufacturing operation or a mall that operates year round. I haven't read enough about this to know for sure, but I can't imagine that the park will be able to generate 100% of their power from solar. They're still going to be a power company customer in some capacity.

I have to agree BB on that. SFGA can't derive all thier power from solar since you will have cloudy and rainy days from time to time. Solar farms are a waste of money unless you are in the desert. VW in Chattanooga is a prime example of this. They have a solar farm but they do have to buy a big part of thier power from TVA due to the amount of cloudy and rainy days we have been getting as of late. SFGA would be better if they used that money for other things instead of a solar farm that will be ideal for 5 months of the year.

Text deleted. If you and Travis want to spar, do it privately. -J
