Slow down with solar

Editor, Gettysburg Times,

This comment is to correct one of the statistics in today’s letter to the Editor. Mr. McCauslin says the proposed solar farm will take 1/3 of Mt Joy Township land. According to the U.S. Bureau of Census, Mt. Joy Township’s geographic land area (land only) is 26 square miles. That equates to 16,640 acres. I don’t know if the 1,000 acres is a correct number, but that amount of land equates to 1/16 NOT 1/3 of Mt Joy Township, that’s 6% NOT 33⅓%.
