Wind Power Land Lease Agreement

Heritage Sustainable Energy strives to limit the impact of each project on the country. There are obviously local disruptions during the construction phase of a project. However, once a project is completed, a landowner is free to continue using the land with little or no long-term interruption. On the other hand, some landowners may be motivated to limit the amount of land subject to the Wind Land Agreement. This could be because the landowner wants to limit the impact of the wind energy project on their other activities on the property (especially if the landowner is a farmer or rancher and plans to continue using the property in this way while the wind energy project is being operated on the property) or have the option to lease the excluded land for other purposes (e.B.B.B. Cell phone towers) or the landowner may be reluctant to give up some degree of control over too many properties. Other signs that the developer has the know-how and resources to set up a wind farm include an agreement to sell wind energy to a utility and a power grid connection agreement. Second, the efficient production of wind energy from wind turbines depends largely on the average annual wind speed on the affected property. Any natural or artificial obstruction (p.B a large building, silo or row of tall trees) that interferes with wind flow and speed on the property can have dramatic and negative effects on the efficiency of wind turbines for generating electricity and cause turbulence to turbine damage. A developer wants to control the size and nature of structures and other obstacles that may be erected or placed on the property by the landowner and third parties during the term of the wind energy land contract. An effective way to achieve this control is to encumber enough property to build, operate and protect the project and its wind resources, and to include in the wind energy land agreement non-interference agreements that limit the landowner`s right to disrupt wind flow on the property. Renting your farmland for wind energy provides another source of income – a source that allows you to continue farming the land.

But wind deals create complex legal and financial issues and affect your property rights in the distant future, says Jennifer Jambor-Delgado, an attorney at the Minnesota-based Farmers` Legal Action Group. For a free and no-obligation review of the website, click here to submit your information. .
