Leasing Your Land

Some solar developers are looking for parcels of land, ranging from 10 to 35 acres, that can be used for solar. Not every property is ideal for installing large solar arrays due to property limitations or zoning requirements, but a participating contractor or developer will be able to determine your land’s suitability. If your property is a candidate for solar, you could benefit from a long-term lease with a developer.

There are multiple factors to consider when deciding whether to lease your land, including:

  • Is your property ideal for large solar arrays?
  • What are the per-acre lease rates?
  • Will the siting and construction of a solar array on your property affect other taxes?
  • Who is responsible for dismantling the solar array once the lease expires or is not renewed?

Additionally, leasing land to solar developers is not limited to business owners. If you are a homeowner with a large property, you also could consider a long-term lease.
