The leasing of property for purposes of facilitating a solar energy project is an increasingly prevalent commercial practice, as solar energy companies seek to acquire optimal space to install solar panelling to generate commercialized energy from the sun. Such leases are not your typical leases, instead involving more detail and specificity, together with concerns associated with a long-term legally binding commitment to the Ontario Power Authority (and the associated obligations arising therefrom), and more recently the Alberta provincial government.

Another increasingly prevalent practice has been the sale of the solar projects from the leaseholders to the landlords, typically following the installation and operational launch of the solar energy system. For once these systems have come on line, and there is merely a requirement for operational maintenance and repair (which is invariably taken care of by third parties), we have seen many landlords taking over the solar energy project, which in turn requires them to undertake appropriate contractual arrangements, together with legal transferences approved by the Ontario Power Authority (or the Alberta provincial government).

At Neufeld Legal P.C., we have considerable experience in the solar energy field, with its associated commercial and legal challenges. For as we have eluded to, commercial leasing plays a role in many such solar energy projects and as such tends to benefit significantly from the involvement of knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel in the solar sector.
