I doubt this is a real big deal for many acres in Ontario. Shouldn't the OFA be supporting new opportunities for renewable energy for farmers...I don't like using good productive crop land for these things but if the price is right?
"Solar proponents like Hutcheson are also unhappy with a new rule that will forbid projects on class 1 and 2 agricultural land. Solaris’s Stardale Solar Park in East Hawkesbury, to be built on 100 hectares of prime agricultural land was approved under old rules and will therefore go ahead as planned, officials said."
Plus - they plan on a 'Buy Ontario' plan for this green energy. Is Buy Ontario the right way to go? Aren't we against the US doing it?
