Two prominent Lexington Greens joined forces with the group Healthy Lexington, Healthy Planet in My to publicly oppose the environmentally destructive Tracer Lane Solar Project. The plan of a private developer would remove trees to create a massive array of solar panels, just 400 feet from the Cambridge Reservoir., a major drinking water supply. Residents would be exposed to polluting runoff commonly associated with deforestation and large solar installations. Jill Stein and John Andrews wrote in the Lexington Sun that "solar" belongs "on roofs and in parking lots – not in scarce forests and open space."
