LETTERS: Please keep solar panels out of sight

To the editor:

A question…wondering if anyone knows if DOT is planning on putting solar panels in the Waterville freeway exits? I have never seen anything uglier then what they did in Augusta. I understand the city had nothing to say about it, that the land is owned by the state. Hard to believe that anyone thought that was a good idea. Maine wants to be known as a beautiful place to vacation…putting solar panels in such visible places is not beautiful…are there not enough open fields in Maine? Please keep them out of sight, at least with a buffer of trees to hide them.
