Opponent of east Pueblo solar park: ‘We are basically going to be in a solar oven’ – Pueblo Chieftain

This map depicts the proposed location of the Pronghorn Solar Park in Pueblo.

A resident of Lakeside Manor Estates who fears he and his neighbors “are basically going to be in a solar oven” is voicing his concerns about the Pronghorn Solar Park proposed for the area just east of the Bighorn Solar project already under construction. 

“I am a proponent of solar, in fact I have solar panels on my property, but this is a massive array,” said Alan Glasscock, 74, who has lived on property that borders the solar park site for the past 24 years. “We are basically going to be in a solar oven and instead of Lakeside Manor Estates we are going to be known as ‘solar panel-side’ manor estates.” 

A total of about 70 Lakeside Manor properties line the northern border of the proposed solar park east of the city. Solar panels will extend 14 to 15 feet high when they are at their maximum tilt.
