Have initial questions? Contact us! We’ll answer those questions and provide you with the information you need to understand the clean energy project development process.
Site Identification and Evaluation
Our expert team specializes in honest site assessment and evaluation, helping you make an informed decision about the best use of your land for solar.
Site leases are all about fairness. Our legal and financial expertise guarantees that your site lease will be strong and sustainable, providing an income stream that will stand the test of time.
Interconnection & Permitting
Our team works with your local utility to ensure your solar system can provide power without any obstacles. We use the state and local permitting process as an opportunity to build community consensus.
Engineering & Construction
Our in-house engineers know how to design a solar system that maximizes landowner value. And, our construction process is designed to complete projects safely and efficiently, while minimizing disruptions to neighboring landowners.
Operation & Maintenance
One of the benefits of having solar on your land is that we’re responsible for all upkeep, including mowing and landscaping, for the length of the lease.
Unless you choose to extend the lease, the system would be decommissioned, the facility removed, and the land restored to its previous condition.
FAQs for Landowners
Can I use my land during the option period?
Land use during the option period is permitted as long as it does not impact future solar development or impede assessments.
Is the landowner expected to do any maintenance?
No! Operation and maintenance of solar equipment, along with land maintenance (mowing, landscaping, etc.) is completely covered for the duration of the lease term.
If I sign the lease, is my land guaranteed to be used for solar?
Building a solar facility is a multi-step process, requiring studies and permits before construction can begin. We navigate the development process with responsible and honest communication. Our goal is construction, but final use for solar is not guaranteed.
What happens to my land after the lease ends?
At the end of the lease term, all equipment related to the solar facility is removed from the property. The land is restored as near to its original condition as possible.
Will leasing my land increase my property taxes?
No. We will pay any property taxes and fees related to the solar system, as well as any rollback taxes levied against the property due to a change in land use. As the property owner, you are still responsible for any pre-existing property taxes.
What access to my land must be granted during the lease period?
Access to your property for regular maintenance and occasionally unscheduled service is needed for the entire time your land is under lease.
How long do solar PV panels last?
Solar panels typically have a warranty of 25–30 years. The actual lifespan of the panel, however, typically spans much longer than the warranty period.
Will the project impact my property value?
There is no evidence that utility-scale solar negatively impacts property values.
Who buys the power?
We sell the power to utility and commercial partners. Each facility is unique regarding who receives the power supply and where the power is delivered.
