Solar lease agreements are not really comparable to commercial lease agreements for retail, office or industrial space. Instead, they are very unique legal arrangements where the tenant seeks to dictate the terms of the arrangement. And in so doing there is an attempt from the tenant (the energy company) to manipulate the arrangement to their commercial advantage. And given that most lawyers have only dealt with standardized commercial leases, they don't necessarily know where to look in a solar lease agreement to identify the potential issues for the landowner and therefore lack the acumen to effectively negotiate appropriate terms to the solar lease agreement.

The importance of understanding what is actually being attempted by the energy company's solar lease agreement and it's actual intended results, is the only means by which you will have your solar lease agreement effectively negotiated and the results therefrom meeting the landowner's expectations. That is why you should be looking to the law firm of Neufeld Legal P.C. to negotiate your solar lease agreement with the energy companies and their lawyers, given that they and their landsmen know that we understand their solar energy option and lease agreements, such that we know how to negotiate to overcome those elements that will substantially undermine your financial return from the solar project.
