Solar land lease for commercial industries

SHOULD YOU LEASE YOUR LAND FOR SOLAR?

Leasing your land for the placement of a solar photovoltaic development project allows you to gain long-term revenue from your property lease, enhance the value of your land for re-sale purposes, and keeping your property intact without having to subdivide any pieces of the property. Many landowners own land in which they can’t decide what to do with it. Solar energy investing might be the best move you can make for putting your unused land to purposeful use, and you’ll be getting paid for it as well.

Not only are you helping yourself save money, produce revenue, and help the environment, you’re also allowing other people to obtain resourceful and natural energy to power their homes and businesses.

Whether you are in the agricultural industry as a farmer trying to add revenue to your farm while continuing to work, a landowner without any ideas how to use your land, a real estate owner looking to cut costs on building expenses, or a commercial and industrial building owner, leasing that property out for solar energy production is one of the most beneficial things you can do to help yourself and others.

What will your land need in order to be leased for solar?

The ideal size for a five-megawatt system is at least 30 acres developing a standard solar field and 40-50 acres for an Agricultural Solar system. The smallest land area that is economically feasible for an investor owned system is 10-18 acres, which would yield a two to three-megawatt system.

Having access to utility grid infrastructure is important and does not need to be near a transmission corridor, but it needs to have a reasonable access to a three-phase electrical service. Good exposure to the sun is crucial, but also, be ready for a long-term commitment: solar farms offer amazing benefits for the long run, and it’s important to recognize this. Plan for the future with solar energy.

At Pope Energy, we’re in the solar energy business of helping landowners lease their property for large-scale photovoltaic solar projects. We also have financing opportunities for you to apply for because we know that not everyone can afford the entire cost up front. We understand that the future is solar, and we want every landowner to be investing their money in a rewarding long-term investment, rather than something quick and short lives.

Benefits of leasing your land for solar

Not only can you create a substantial source of additional income for your property, but you can also create a brighter, greener future for the surrounding community. If you have extra land available, why not put it to work generating renewable energy? Give your land a purpose for you and the community. Owning land is very important in today’s day and age, so why not make it useful with solar energy solutions from Pope Energy.  

That is community impact on a much greater level.

Agricultural Industry

Farms are resorting to solar energy to help power their land. When it comes to farming, farmers have plenty of things they need to power in order for them to be successful in the agricultural industry. If they can have solar energy power most of their farm, they’ll be saving on energy bills and not have to worry about going under. More farms around the country are turning to solar panels to power their farms, and they are seeing benefits they have never seen before. They can relax and focus on feeding communities all over the nation.

Land and Real Estate

Large landowners, as well as real estate owners have the opportunity to help the community and themselves by investing in solar energy to use on their land or properties. With apartment complexes or other rental properties, real estate owners can make their lives easier, as well as the apartment renters’ lives easier by installing solar panels. They could reduce the price for renting an apartment, cut down on their own energy costs, and be able to supply their renters with energy efficient amenities while living at their property.

Commercial & Industrial Solar Installation

As we mentioned before, commercial and industrial companies like Walmart, Apple, Target, and more are turning to solar panel installation to help supply energy for their industrial buildings, stores, and operational buildings. They have a certain influence over consumers, so for them to invest in renewable energy and the environment, they’re ethical persona plays well with the regular person, but it also is doing good for the entire world. When other large companies  see their counterparts doing this, they’ll be inclined to do the same.

What are the benefits for my business?

Not every business owner or industry executive realizes the full potential of benefits when it comes to investing their money into solar energy development on their properties or buildings. With a full-scale installation and development, your business will see these major long-term benefits that are worth the investment.
