Many farms and ranches throughout the country are capitalizing on available renewable energy options. This program will discuss a myriad of renewable energy law issues relating to agriculture land, including:
- solar power purchase agreements (e.g., construction risk allocation, production guarantees, lender and financing issues, and common defaults and remedies);
- solar lease agreements (e.g., easements, alternative land rights, title issues, and water rights for concentrated solar power projects);
- wind lease agreements (e.g., current trends and historical context, stages of wind energy development, considerations for agricultural landowners, and legal considerations for wind leases);
- transmission and pipeline easements (e.g., understanding bargaining power, common procedures, construction issues, operation and maintenance concerns, compensations, and potential liability); and
- the current economic and policy environment for renewable energy projects and trends that may influence future development.
