    SW Louisiana outrage of 5300 acre solar farm on land owned by Sweetlake Land and Oil Company. Environmentalists ought to be outraged as this acreage is prime wintering habitat for ducks and geese in pasture (rice fields) and wetlands. It has produced a decent amount of oil and a lot of natural gas over the years. The waterfowl coexisted quite well with hydrocarbon production but won’t do very well with their habitat covered with solar panels
