Solar ... and sheep

Sheep graze around and under solar panels. According to Caleb Scott, seventh-generation farmer and vice president of the American Solar Grazing Association, sheep grazing is the best for solar panels and the panels are really the best things for sheep. Scott said a variety of plants grow under solar panels that help sheep gain weight and the panels themselves protect the sheep against wind, rain and too much sun, which helps them remain healthy. Scott will be speaking at the June 9 public hearing for a solar moratorium in the Town of Lockport.
