It's too close to town.
That is the overwhelming message from Vacy residents who met last week to discuss a proposal to build a 50 hectare solar panel farm near the historic village.
They stood on the town's oval between the primary school and the pub to convey the impact their rural town will face if the plan is given the green light.
The hill behind them is part of the 50 hectare plot flagged for the project and none of the group are keen to see the rural landscape transformed into rows of solar panels.
The nearest boundary of the proposed site takes one-and-a-half minutes to reach by car from the Farmer's Hotel in the town's main street.
It takes just over two-and-a-half minutes to drive from the hotel to the furthest boundary on Horns Crossing Road.
Gail and Paul Wright live next to that boundary and have spent decades creating an organic and natural landscape to boost the block's flora and fauna.They are concerned about the affect it will have on their lives and have confirmed it will be visible from their land.
"We feel devastated, we are worried about the health impacts, we are worried we won't be able to sell if we need to," Mrs Wright said.
"This is a high lightning area too, what if [the solar panels] caught on fire?"
Mr Wright said the landowner contacted them about the plan company Rio Indygen had for the site and acknowledged rent would be paid in return for the lease of the land.
"He said the rent was a significant amount more than he would make from cattle," Mr Wright said.
Kate Wright lives in Vacy's main street and won't be able to see the solar farm from her house, but she is worried about the impact on the area.
She lived in nearby Gresford for 25 years before moving to Vacy five years ago and is incredibly passionate about preserving local heritage.
"I'm concerned for the valley itself. We have lifestyle blocks here - it's all about lifestyle, not industry. We need to preserve our lifestyle here, you can't have industry like that alongside people," she said.
"Australia is a big country so why pick that location when there are so many other options. This is not the only substation in Australia.
"It's going to be built on agricultural country and I think this type of thing should be built on arid or semi-arid land."
