With today's focus on renewable energy sources, your land is more valuable than ever. Now, you have the opportunity to maximize profits by leasing your property for wind turbine development, while retaining most of your land for existing or other uses.
EDF welcomes the opportunity to explore the benefits of developing a wind energy partnership with you. Over the past 20 years, we have forged partnerships with landowners across the United States, with excellent results.
When we select a site for potential development, EDF negotiates an agreement with the landowner, with the option to lease land following the completion of an on-site wind analysis. Lease terms are typically 20-40 years and provide the landowner with a payment based on energy produced, or fixed annual payments.
Currently, your livelihood may be impacted by weather extremes. A wind energy lease can provide a consistent and reliable source of income to help buffer these financial variables.
Once construction begins, it normally takes about six months to construct a wind project. Wind turbines and service roads typically use less than 10% of the land under lease, which means dry land farming, grazing, or other uses are minimally impacted.
