What are the visual impacts of solar?

Solar arrays spend most of the day at a low angle and at their maximum tilt (sunrise/sunset) are no more than 20 feet tall. Because panels are often screened by trees and other vegetation planted outside the project fencing, the visibility of a solar farm to nearby residences is minimal. As development progresses and the project is designed, we will identify areas where the project may be visible and where additional setbacks or vegetative screening may be appropriate to minimize visibility.
