Charlie Smith, landowner where the solar farm is located, and local beekeeper, said, “Hosting a solar farm on our land has brought environmental benefits to our community and the surrounding ecosystem. Not only does it support sustainable energy, but it also harmoniously coexists with our beef grazing practices, creating a balance between energy production and agriculture.” His wife, Cheryl Smith added, “The presence of the solar panels has not hindered the natural flora, which continues to thrive and provides a haven for our bees. These bees are crucial for pollination and maintaining biodiversity in our area. It is a win-win situation when we harness the sun’s power while still nurturing the land and its inhabitants.”

The DeKalb Solar Farms are illustrative of economic and environmental progress through deployment of renewable energy, emphasizing PureSky Energy’s contribution towards a sustainable future. These facilities are not only a testament to our commitment to innovation and sustainability but also a significant step in the community’s well-being.
