Land Development

Is your land a good fit for a solar farm?

It can take several years to develop, design and build a solar farm. Short-term lease payments are often provided during this development phase and long-term lease arrangements spanning 20+ years are negotiated before a project begins construction. Energy produced from a solar farm on your land is generally sold directly to local utilities to provide clean energy to the region around you. Solar developers handle the design, financing and construction of a project to make this possible.

A few key factors determine the feasibility of using land for solar developments:

Location near transmission lines and substations

Available acreage (with a minimum of 10 acres generally suggested)

Geological characteristics of land (flat slope, few rocks/trees)

Availability for long-term leases (20+ years)
