Farm supporters fight proposed solar project near Lawrence, Kansas



Evergy’s plan for a 600-acre solar farm near Lawrence, Kansas has generated opposition by residents who believe it will remove valuable farmland from agricultural production.

It even drew the attention of noted land artist Stan Herd who created an earthwork installation that reads: “Save Prime Farmland. Relocate Utility Solar.”

If Douglas County planners approve the Kansas Sky Energy Center solar farm, it would actually remove more than 1,100 acres of farmland while solar panels would cover 604 acres.
