PRLog - April 5, 2012 - CANTON, Mass. -- Canton, MA - The International Brotherhood of Electrical workers has re-launched its website: www.CantonSolarExposed.com to address the growing interest and conflicting information regarding the Canton Landfill Solar Farm on Pine Street in Canton, Massachusetts. This expanded site provides a larger vehicle for the IBEW to present the great breadth of content and the issues it will be raising regarding this issue. The website contains pertinent information about what the IBEW believes is an illegally constructed and improperly permitted project being done by inexperienced, unlicensed, out-of state workers one that could lead to real public safety issues for Canton residents as well as surrounding towns now and in the future.
In addition to presenting all of the printed materials produced by the IBEW for download, the website describes applicable National Electrical Code for Photovoltaic installations, refutes the recent false claims issued by Board of Selectman Chair, John Connolly, and documents certain relevant facts previously undisclosed to Canton residents by the town. Namely, that Southern Sky Renewable Energy has NEVER done a project of this type, nor has Gemma Power Systems - Canton's would be their FIRST.
The IBEW also has a Facebook.com page (Canton Solar Exposed), as well as a Twitter.com feed (@CantonTimeBomb)
If you have any information you'd like to share with the IBEW regarding this project or any other relevant issues concerning Canton, please email them to email@example.com, tweet them to @CantonTimeBomb or post them to our Facebook page.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers was formed in 1891 by a group of electricians who wanted a safer workplace, fair wages and, in general, respect for the service they rendered their communities through their labors. Because the IBEW nourished the needs of these workers, it has grown from a handful of pioneers to the largest electrical union in the world. However, the IBEW is not about a growing business or organization, it’s a fraternity. The IBEW is made up of working men and women, in the electrical industry, committed to the industry. Neither the IBEW nor the electrical industry is made better unless all who labor in the industry are secure in their employment, receive a fair wage, have training programs, pension plans, dental and medical plans for themselves and their families. For over a hundred years the IBEW has been about offering all these things to electricians. All electrical workers deserve the IBEW’s standard of living, the highest in the industry.
