Welcome to No Solar In Logan County (Ohio)

nosolarinlc.com

Welcome to nosolarinlc.com.  We are a grassroots movement located in Logan County, Ohio.  We have come together as a community to educate our fellow neighbors on the negative impact of industrial solar facilities.


We support green energy, however we realize that if our fertile farmland is turned into solar panels then how are we supposed to eat?

NO FARMS, NO FOOD

Currently there are several developers enticing farmers to lease their land for a large profit.  While landowners can certainly do what they want with their own land, we believe that once a respectable attorney reviews the contract, they will find several flaws and will advise their client not to sign.

Ask yourself, if several thousand acres of agricultural land is converted to industrial solar facilities, who will grow your food?  Bill Gates?  Mark Zuckerberg?

Please consider getting involved through our Facebook page (link at the top of this page).  We are up against multi-billion companies, please donate to keep this movement alive and productive.  Thank you!

Participate In The OPSB Application Process

  • Solar projects that exceed 50 MW are governed by the OPSB. Invenergy will need to submit an application to the OPSB and go through a regulated process.

  • This lengthy process includes public notification (which took place on January 12), various meetings, and hearings.

  • Residents can participate in the process, however you will need to register by a deadline set by the OPSB in order to provide official input at hearings.

  • It is critical to watch for emails, calls to action on our website and Facebook page once hearings begin.

  • The OPSB website https://opsb.ohio.gov/processes/public-participation allows you to monitor the Fountain Point Project and you can sign up to receive notifications directly related to the project.

Donate

  • No Solar In Logan County is a group of volunteers.  Donations help pay for legal services (required to understand the complicated process through the OPSB), research and development of resources, community outreach, and out of pocket expenses.

  • Keep in mind, donations are not tax deductible.

  • Checks can be sent to P.O. Box 239 West Mansfield, OH 43358
