Resident: People Must be Informed About Dangers of KDC Solar Plant


To the Editor: 

I continue to oppose the KDC SOLAR proposed industrial scale Solar Power Plant in the rural residential zone in Bedminster, and believe it essential that residents be informed about the consequences of this installation.

Many Bedminster residents believe, as I do, that it would be a tragic mistake to allow this installation, and many have attended the township’s Land Use Board hearings to learn more.

But as all residents cannot attend the public hearings related to this issue, here are some links people can visit on the Internet to become more informed:

  • www.preservebedminster.com notes where the proposed industrial scale Solar Power Plant would be located; contains an overview of the implications it would present; links that provide more detailed information about it; and links that residents who oppose this installation may use to stay informed and express their opposition.
  • If you are a Facebook user, consider visiting this link: https://www.facebook.com/bedminsterbarn?ref=br_tf
  • Visit https://www.change.org/, use the “Search” box at the top of the page, type in the word “Bedminster” and when the site returns the search results, you’ll see the petition on which – if you so choose – you may “Vote NO to a Use Variance for a Solar Power Plant on Country Club and Meadow Road.” Be sure to select hide or show your name should you choose to vote. 

The next public hearing will be held Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Bedminster Town Hall at 1 Miller Lane in Bedminster. 

Stop by the Bedminster Fall Fest on Sept. 12 from noon to 6 p.m. at River Road Park or the New Jersey Highlands Festival at Waterloo to be held Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Waterloo Village in Allamuchy to visit the Stop Somerset Hills Power Plant (SSHPP) and local neighbors at their booth for detailed information.

Thank you for the opportunity to share these links and the information they can provide to Bedminster residents.
