Renewable Energy Opportunities on the Farm
Two guides to help landowners navigate solar leases are available from the National Agricultural Law Center. The Farmland Owner’s Guide to Solar Leasing helps landowners understand solar energy development and the solar leasing process. It covers topics such as property taxes, government programs, common legal documents, and more. A second publication, Understanding Solar Energy Agreements, provides information for landowners considering and negotiating leases. Topics addressed include conflicting land uses, responsibilities of each party, and typical payment structures. Both publications are available online.
