Industrial-scale solar & Death Valley NP's natural beauty: local communities ask, Can they coexist?

Solar energy developers are eyeing thousands of acres of federal lands inside a rural Nevada county to house more than a dozen commercial-scale projects capable of powering millions of homes across the West.

But the onslaught of project applications, all filed in the last 14 months, has sparked fears among some local government leaders and residents that their small communities could be overwhelmed by the industrial activity. They worry the development would drive tourists away from nearby Death Valley National Park, ruining the vistas and austere natural beauty that draw thousands to the region each year.
