Letter to the editor: Golf course could host solar farm

Has any consideration been given to siting the prospective solar array on the Middlebury College golf course?

Think about the benefits for the environment — no more constant mowing, which pollutes our air half of the year, and no more pesticide and fertilizer damage to Mother Earth. South Street Extension residents will be happier because only the college, which benefits from this solar farm, would be able to see it.

Then Middlebury College can purchase Neshobe Golf Club in Brandon. Combining the two clubs there could make a money-making venture while cutting the environmental impact almost in half.

If the college really wants to be a good, environmentally sound neighbor, how about this option?
