Debate Over Solar Carports Heats Up in Clarksburg
The Clarksburg Planning Board says the structures at the former country club are ground-mounted solar arrays; the developer says they are carports with solar-panel roofs.
The debate over the definition of the structures — and whether there was a permit issued for their construction — lead to heated exchanges between town officials and the owner at last week's Planning Board meeting.
The three structures were installed by BVD Solar, a solar development company owned by Todd Driscoll, who also owns the golf course. Driscoll pointed out several times during the evening that he does not own structures but builds them for solar companies.
