As an Alberta farmer, you have an extremely valuable commodity and that is your FARMLAND. In the commercial estimation of energy companies, your farm is extremely valuable, especially if it is suited for the particular renewable energy generation (solar or wind) and it is well positioned in relation to the electrical grid. However, just because your farmland is commercially attractive, this does not mean that they are going to pay top dollar for the use of your farmland. Instead, these energy companies and their representatives will make every possible attempt to pay you and your family the least amount of money possible while seeking to get the most out of your land.

The subtle deception of the energy companies and their representatives in seeking every possible advantage through their solar option + lease agreement to undercut your financial return, while maximizing their own financial gain, is truly incredible given how much these energy companies are set to profit. With their lawyers couching these discrepancies in endless legal terminology and their negotiators continually espousing how good a deal it is that you are receiving, it is difficult to discern where you need to push back. It is for that reason that you should retain the services of a law firm that understands the implications of the various solar option and lease agreements and the particular legal clauses that they are utilizing to subvert the financial return of the farmer and increase their own control over your farmland. The extent of this control can be quite extreme, such that many landowners are shocked by what they are giving away. And the scary thing is how many farmers have probably signed such agreements without realizing what they have given up and would be infuriated if they actually knew that they had foolishly given this away. As such, getting the right legal counsel cannot be understated. 

For farmers seeking legal services pertaining to the leasing of your farmland to a solar energy operator in the province of Alberta, contact solar energy lawyer Christopher R. Neufeld at or by telephone at 403-400-4092.
