I have just been informed that invenergy is proposing to build a 250 Megawatt solar farm right in my backyard. Does anyone have any experience with this type of installation? Also, can anyone suggest questions that I should bring up at the public meetings?
Thanks 73 Larry

I installed solar panels right next to my antennas. I installed a system based on micro inverters and have no indication on FT8 of generated interference, but the house 150 feet from me has solar with a central inverter that does generate a very small amount of interference. Recommend checking if the solar farm uses micro inverters or central inverters.
