The forum featured speakers representing several of the groups who are the most involved and have the most at stake in the siting process, including farmers, renewable energy developers, conservationists, and government officials. We had a lively discussion of the current reality of siting projects, as well as how we can handle these issues in the future. PART II demonstrated that there are good solutions. Jeanne Boyle discussed RI’s first landfill solar project. And Kaitlin Kelly described how MA is using their renewable energy program pricing incentives to drive development away from farms and undeveloped land. They also have siting requirements like leaving top soil in place and not paving the site that would address some of the issues raised in the first panel.
