Thank you for your coverage regarding the solar panels. I am appalled that these panels were approved and are allowed to stay. While I understand the laws that are cited, I find it more than difficult to believe that such laws permit the destruction of the entire hillside. Didn't the developer on Carnation just have his project rejected due to its perceived negative impact on the hillside?
As a measurement of the sanity of this project, imagine if every homeowner along Dolphin Terrace installed a similar solar panel project. We would have, in essence, ruined one of the few natural areas still viewable from the Bay and the surrounding area. This certainly couldn't have been the intention of the legislation.
I am also extremely disappointed in the attitude of the Dolphin Terrace homeowner. Even if such solar panel installations are permissible, he should be respectful of his neighbors and fellow citizens who are largely in opposition to the solar panels. I believe he is inaccurate in his belief that even a small percentage of people think the panels are a good idea and should remain. Just picture the entire hillside covered in such panels, and who could be in support of such an installation.
