A common option for land owners to increase their revenue is to enter a land lease agreement for the whole or a portion of the land to a solar developer, who will then install an array and provide annual lease payments to the land owner. We work diligently to minimize the disturbed area of the installation, allowing traditional agricultural production to continue without interruption, and we invite new agricultural components to the property such as Livestock Grazing or Beekeeping. At the end of the agreement term, the land owner will have accrued revenue for two to three decades, helped produce imperative amounts of renewable energy, all while retaining ownership and access to their land.
So, can solar energy and agriculture coexist? At Verogy, we believe the answer is not only yes, but it is a resounding, echoing and all-encompassing yes. The two not only coexist, but they provide benefits to one another past the monetary gains described here. Both are crucial in the fight to fortify the sustainability of our planet. If you have land that might be a good host to a solar farm, contact us today to learn how you can create additional revenue while supporting agriculture and renewable energy.
