That number is off or in an expensive location, or impacted by solar. One can buy land for less than $18k/ acre..
Great response. Many of your ideas are outside of my ability and comfort level. I would like to be the person who fixes and flips houses or runs commercial real estate, but that’s not my skill set. Here’s an PNW organization that helps fund and install solar and retrofits: https://www.communityenergyproject.org/our-services/Another one is to find out about community projects and builder projects, and try to insert myself with the idea and maybe some budget, to provide solar and electric charging places for tenants. One inhibitor to the adoption to electric driving is apartment dwellers that do not have a garage for EV charging and don't want to be following the old gas station visit model with superchargers. If we enabled work place charging off of solar at daytime, and also at public transportation where people park as they commute to the city next year once the pandemic is under control, it could lower some of those barriers.
I've been toying with that idea myself. I think high tech farming will be where we head in the future with smaller production facilities located near people. Fresher food, less waste, etc. I have a small bit of exposure to the space due to my Reef aquarium hobby (building LED fixtures and understanding the basics of wavelengths)Great response.

I’m planning to donate dollars directly, less work for me while I still feel good and have time to maximize production of garden vegetables.
This project was turned down on a 4-3 votebe cautious. not everyone has positive thoughts about solar PV farms. as an example
Stuarts Draft, Virginia, near Round Hill,
what's being discussed on Facebook is a group of an unknown size opposed
This is an 83 megawatt PV array
(I expect it to go through)
essentially free electricity from sunlight, with no fuel cost
".........On Tuesday, January 12 at 7:00 pm the Augusta County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at the Government Center in Verona on the proposed Round Hill Solar Project. This 880 acre project will be located in the viewshed along Tinkling Spring, Churchman’s Mill and White Hill Roads with 560 acres covered with 12 foot high solar panels that will not be effectively screened by landscape buffers. It will fundamentally change the rural character of the Stuarts Draft community and destroy this iconic farming landscape. If you are opposed to this invasive large scale solar project, it is important that you attend the public hearing and express your opposition.”............"
Round Hill Solar
I would tread very lightly as this is explicitly against TMC rules.I've been funneling some TSLA proceeds into my residential solar startup inspired by many of the themes espoused here on TMC. I'll obviously be trolling the membership here in the years to come offering equity, ……
…… don't want it to come off as self-promotion. Eventually I might be pitching to these island owners for equity and want to be transparent from the start. I'm on like my 3rd weekly ban, so my leash is already short!
