Solar panels present safety concerns

I support renewable energy. However, this proposed location is too visible, with no input as to how this project will affect landings and takeoff of aircraft. Will reflections from the panels and fields of electrical currents interfere with visual as well as communications with aircraft? Safety is more important than solar panels.

Until all aspects of safety are vetted at this location, I would suggest the landfill location or other locations be considered.
