Why 1000 Friends Fought Medford Solar Farm
Placing a bunch of solar panels in a rural area is often referred to as a "solar farm." But it's not like actual farming can go on around the solar arrays, and that's what troubles 1000 Friends of Oregon.
The land-use group works to make sure property owners and planners comply with Oregon land-use law.
And the group took exception to a solar farm approved for use on farmland near Medford, appealing the approval and getting it overturned. 1000 Friends attorney Meriel Darzen explains the issues.
