Real Estate Owners

If you’re a landowner, or if you represent any entity that owns or has control of land, Verogy can determine if your site is a fit for solar development.

Put your open spaces to work for you by hosting solar systems on them. Verogy designs, builds, installs, and maintains the system, so all you need to do is provide the land.

Verogy Can Help You Monetize Your Open Spaces

The cost of renewable energy is dropping, and in some locations, the cost is lower than natural gas or coal. Solar developers like Verogy are looking for available open land to host solar projects. Similar to a traditional lease agreement, we propose to rent or lease the land from you. This structured agreement typically has a 20 to 35 year lifespan. Verogy handles all components of the project including development, engineering, construction, permitting, interconnection approvals, finance, commissioning, and maintenance.

Things to Consider as a Land Owner

Is your land suitable for solar power? One megawatt of solar typically requires 4-5 acres of land. The typical solar farm produces 5-20 megawatts, which would require a minimum of 20-25 acres. It should be accessible and near existing utility infrastructure. The land also needs to have sufficient sun exposure.

Solar energy adds value to your land. As a landowner, you should think about your property’s present and future uses and values. Solar land development generally creates more revenue than agricultural uses and provides a steady, reliable income.

One Megawatt of Solar Typically Requires 4-5 Acres of Land

The typical 5 MW solar farm requires approximately 20-25 acres. If your property meets these solar farm land requirements, you can begin monetizing your property to produce renewable energy.

Reasons to Start a Solar Farm

Solar arrays produce clean, renewable energy. Energy produced from the warmth of the sun is clean and renewable. A solar array is a passive method of producing energy that produces no pollution, traffic, noise, or light. True, solar requires sunlight, which is not possible on cloudy days or overnight, but it also doesn’t require burning limited fossil fuels or emitting dangerous hydrocarbons into the atmosphere.

Your solar panel farm has little impact on the environment. All you need is a wide-open space. The impact to the land is minimal, as the only onsite structure may be an equipment pad and electrical infrastructure to handle the produced energy. Solar farms can be placed nearly anywhere under the sun without disruption or intrusion.

Verogy handles all construction and maintenance. Solar equipment has developed over the years and is more robust and dependable than ever. During construction, we provide the solar building products and materials. After installation, your solar panels require little onsite maintenance aside from vegetation control and routine repairs. Output and trends are monitored remotely, so if an issue is detected or if certain panels aren’t performing as they should, we send a team to investigate and perform the needed repairs.

Your roof can be an asset too. Verogy also leases roof space for large logistics facilities and warehouses. Companies that own these kinds of buildings benefit from an additional revenue stream while augmenting their existing power grid. This lowers their dependence on purchased electricity from fossil fuels.
