The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative has issued a Position Statement on solar arrays sited in forested areas. The Collaborative notes in its Statement that while solar power should be encouraged as a key component in moving away from fossil fuels, options exist for placing solar arrays in already developed areas, and avoiding forested and open areas. The Collaborative encourages local Towns to develop bylaws for siting solar arrays in areas that would not result in further loss of forested areas, open land or other natural resources.
