South Jersey tends to be pretty conservative -politically and socially - but solar power is catching on with one of the most conservative segments of the population : the farmers.
This array is an important part of an apple orchard.
Driving through this part of the state, I've seen many similar installations - including one that powers a roadside diner in Atlantic County.
I've been fascinated with solar power since I was a kid: we had an outdoor shower behind a chicken coop ,that used summer sunlight to heat water. The shower was a godsend-after hours of "haying": what a delight to sluice the sweat and itchy hayseeds off our skins !
There are those who insist we should ignore alternative technologies -such as solar-because they don't offer the instant gratification of petroleum-based energy.(Some of these same people look on wars in the Middle East as "a good thing"; some are financially invested in petroleum; and some apparently just want to be in step with the movers and shakers.)
All I can say is: Some day the wells will run dry.Then what ???
