Cars drive on Interstate 82 past the future site of a solar array Thursday, July 29, 2021 in Ellensburg, Wash.

To the editor -- I traveled from Yakima to Ellensburg a few days ago, my first trip there in a few months, and observed something new just short of the I-90 interchange.

It was a large field of solar panels covering some of the most beautiful farm ground anywhere.

What a waste!
