No, Solar Panels Don’t Suck Up All The Sun’s Sun Juice

>> THERE ARE A LOT OF NEW FORMS OF ENERGY THAT ARE ACTUALLY GROWING ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WIND, SOLAR, AND TO BE FAIR TO WOODLAND IN NORTH CAROLINA, THEY HAVE DONE THIS SEVERAL TIMES, THEY HAVE THREE SOLAR FARMS THAT THEY APPROVED IN THE WOODLAND TOWN COUNCIL SO FAR. A FOURTH ONE HAD COME UP, THAT IS WHERE WE RAN INTO SOME ISSUES. SOME CONSTITUENTS CAME IN AND ARGUED, AND TO BE FAIR TO THE LEGISLATORS, THEY DID NOT MAKE THESE ARGUMENTS, CONSTITUENTS DID. LET ME QUOTE THE ROANOKE-COWAN NEWS HERALD — >> I ALMOST MADE IT AN ENTIRE HOUR WITHOUT THE COUGH, HOLD ON. >> ALMOST. >>HERE IS WHAT I AM SURE OF, THERE IS NO BROWN VEGETATION NEAR THE SOLAR PANEL, BECAUSE THE SOLAR PANEL IS SUCKING UP THE OTHER PHOTOSYNTHESIS FROM THE AREA. OH NO, YOU SUNLIGHT, YOU ARE NOT GOING OVER THERE. THE SOLAR PANEL IS GRABBING YOU. THE SOLAR PANELS FOR THE SUNLIGHT THAT HITS THE SOLAR PANEL.

JANE MANN CONTINUED — >> SCIENTISTS COULD TELL YOU, AND YOU ARE A FORMER SCIENCE TEACHER. I COULD TELL YOU. BUT APPARENTLY YOU WOULDN'T LISTEN, SO MAYBE WE SHOULDN'T WASTE OUR BREATH. BOBBY MANN, ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER, CAME WITH HER, AND HE HAD ANOTHER THEORY — >>THOSE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THEORIES, TO BE FAIR, PUT BIZARRELY IN THE SAME SENTENCE. I DON'T KNOW WHY BUSINESSES WOULD NOT COME TO WOODLAND IF THERE WERE SOLAR PANELS, I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT ALL. THEY ALSO CLAIMED, OTHER CONSTITUENTS DID, THAT THE SOLAR PANELS WERE DRIVING THE YOUNG CITIZENS OF WOODLAND AWAY. I DID NOT KNOW MILLENNIALS WERE ANTI-SOLAR PANELS. I HAD NO IDEA. I DID NOT KNOW THAT THE YOUNG OF WOODLAND WERE PERHAPS VAMPIRES AND DID NOT LIKE SOLAR PANELS BRINGING IN ALL THAT SUN. BUT THE FIRST PART OF HIS THEORY I'M FAIRLY POSITIVE ABOUT. HE SAID THE SOLAR FARMS WOULD SUCK UP ALL THE ENERGY FROM THE SUN. I AM SURE THE SUN IS GOING TO BE OKAY. COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES HAD TO COME IN, THIS IS STRATA SOLAR COMPANY ARGUING FOR THE SOLAR FARM, AND THEY HAD TO BOTHER SAYING THIS — >> THEY ONLY DRAW THE SUNLIGHT THAT FALLS ON THEM.

>> THEY HEARD FROM CONCERNED CONSTITUENTS WHO APPEARED TO NOT HAVE THEIR SCIENCE EXACTLY RIGHT, AND THEY HEARD FROM COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES, TO BE FAIR, BUT ALSO THE SCIENCE ON THIS IS NOT OVERLY COMPLICATED. I AM PRETTY SURE THE SUN HAS NOT BEEN DRAINED OF ALL ITS ENERGY BECAUSE OF SOLAR PANELS. HOW DID THE VOTE COME OUT? THE VOTE ON THE SOLAR PANELS THIS TIME AROUND, 3-1 AGAINST. SORRY, NO MORE SOLAR PANELS IN WOODLAND COUNTY, OR WOODLAND TOWN. THOSE ARGUMENTS WERE PERSUASIVE. >> OKAY, WELL, THANK GOD WOODLAND TOWN DID NOT PUT UP ANY MORE SOLAR PANELS, OTHERWISE NONE OF US MIGHT BE ABLE TO USE THE SUN ANYMORE. THANK YOU, WOODLAND. >>YOUNG TURKS..
