12 NORTH COUNTY OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 | BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER placed on agricultural/residential land, which requires a special use permit for utility-scale, ground- mounted energy systems. The North Kingstown-based Green Development will lease the space from White Oak Farm, providing needed support for off-seasons. Green Development will pay Glocester a tax of $5,000 per megawatt, or approximately $9,000 per year. "This isn't just a solar project. This is a solar project that is allow- ing the retention of farming opera- tions for the owners," Morini said. At the end of a 25-year lease, Green Development is responsible to return the space back to previ- ous conditions, including remov- ing the concrete pads. The Planning Board will review the solar array again for pre- liminary plans and, if those are approved, final review.
