Texas AG Says Counties Can’t Fight Solar Farms

The Texas Tribune reports that the state attorney general’s office dealt a blow to Franklin County, which has been searching for ways to keep solar farms away. Some residents in Franklin have been fighting proposals for solar development because they don’t want to see trees cut down, grasslands scraped, or wildlife blocked with fences, among other reasons. Angela Colmenero, who is serving as provisional attorney general, told Franklin County that Texas law doesn’t give county governments specific authority to ban the development of solar farms. And while other laws give counties control over roads and public health, counties can not use those laws for a solar farm ban.
