Vote on Six Flags Great Adventure solar farm further delayed

Posted Tuesday, January 12, 2016 2:12 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Board members had hoped to vote on a hotly-contested solar farm at Six Flags Great Adventure. Instead, tensions flared during a four-hour marathon meeting with a verbal sparring match between board members and the main objectors’ attorney. Public comment and a potential vote has been delayed until at least February 1.

They need a renegade like Robert Duvall in the movie Brazil to slip in at night super hero style and install solar panels on the QT.

Here's hoping the NJ people are smarter than the NC folks who thought solar panels would decrease the sun's ability to provide light and heat...

While Snopes gives a 'mostly true', it's not for the headline that made the story famous. That "suck up all the energy" thing was a solitary comment made by one citizen. But, of course, it was the headline of every article (and attributed to the entire town and the reason for their decision) when the story spread.

If they are so worried about the cute fuzzy animals and their path from one waterway to the other waterway, they could easily build them a wooded path into the projects desgn. No?

And I bet there are several other solutions that could fix whatever other concerns the opposing entity has. Didn't the park say that they are going to replace the trees that they cut down with new trees?

I don't trust the opposing side. I still smell the power company that provides electricity to them. Have they made any comments about this story? They have the most to lose, as far as money goes. Money is the hidden factor in many disputes.

A solar farm isn't what they need...

I'm an engineer who has worked on a number of Solar Panel projects.

GA's comments concerning putting Solar Panels in the parking lot reducing the number of parking spaces is not really true.

It would be entirely possible to put Solar Panels over the parking lot with minimal,if any, loss of spaces. I've sen it done in several locations.

It would just cost a lot more.

Yeah, but don't forget about the epidemic of people constantly running into poles.

Meanwhile, Epcot's solar farm has been going up the last few weeks, and before long, they'll be (partially) powering Spaceship Earth with the sun.

Can I thank the Phoenicians for that too?
