"Going Solar" in Silt?

Installing solar panels in Silt

Located in Garfield County, the town of Silt has seen huge changes over the past decade. The once quiet fields surrounding the town are now abuzz with the sound of natural gas fracking operations, as more than 8,000 wells have been dug.

National Public Radio’s report “Close Encounters with Gas Well Pollution” tells the story of Silt local Tim Ray and his “close encounters” with fracking operations in the town. He notes that drilling rigs are so close to his house, that he and his neighbors have referenced that Steven Spielberg film to describe what they’re seeing – flashing lights and unknown smoke plumes.

Worries over natural gas drilling are causing many in Silt to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, as they witness how damaging extraction can be. Not only is fracking an eyesore to many of these residents, but it also poses health concerns.

Hoping to spark change on the local level, people in Silt are increasingly turning to solar to power their homes and businesses. As people across Colorado see how solar has benefited Silt, they’ll make the switch themselves and hopefully reduce fracking operations in the region.
