Large ground-mounted industrial solar projects have already destroyed over 4,000 acres of Massachusetts forests and farmland according to a recent Mass Audubon and Clark University study. Under the state’s climate plan, 158,000 of forested lands are proposed to be destroyed for more ground-mounted industrial solar. Check out our Wall of Shame for more.
