Kamenetz ve­toes mora­to­rium on so­lar farms

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND - — Pamela Wood

Bal­ti­more County Ex­ec­u­tive Kevin Kamenetz has ve­toed a bill that would have put a four­month mora­to­rium on large so­lar panel ar­rays in ru­ral ar­eas. Kamenetz wrote to Bal­ti­more County Coun­cil mem­bers Thurs­day to say that he didn’t ob­ject to the goal of the bill — which is to buy time to de­velop reg­u­la­tions for so­lar farms — but did ob­ject to a pro­vi­sion ex­empt­ing county-owned so­lar projects only if they in­clude land­scap­ing paid for by the com­pany in­stalling them. That pro­vi­sion was in­sti­gated by Coun­cil­man David Marks, who raised con­cerns about Kamenetz’s plans to have So­lar City put a so­lar panel field at Mount Vista Park in Kingsville in his dis­trict.
