Selling a solar energy project is rarely a straightforward process that is devoid of legal, regulatory and associated challenges. The sale of these solar enterprises tend to be full of challenges when the owners are seeking to get the best price for what is being sold and divest itself of a particular renewal energy operation, while seeking to limit, if not eliminate, any subsequent legal exposure. As such, it imperative that the appropriate professionals, including legal counsel, are engaged early in the solar energy project sale / divestiture process (generally, very well in advance of when owners typically would consider 'bring in' the lawyers - as postponing the lawyer's involvement typically doesn't save money, but results in the ownership losing money).

Optimizing Sale Price - Early engagement of legal counsel, when there is but the consideration of selling the solar energy project, can be extremely important in optimizing the sale price, where it is possible to identify such opportunities.

Finding the Appropriate Buyer - Given the limitations associated with solar projects - given that they are located to a specific physical location and is dependent upon a long-term pay-out, finding a buyer that is looking for the particular return that is attainable from their acquisition of your solar energy project, becomes highly specific, but also presents itself to some highly-interested and financially-motivated buyers.

Completing the Deal - Getting to completion can be a challenge, especially when forces out of your control impact the prospect of the transaction closing, while mandatory regulatory requirements remain in play, and yet these matters need to be effectively dealt with if the objective goal is to be realized.

As a lawyer committed to the successful transitioning of solar energy projects between ownership teams and the realization of the economic potential of this renewable energy source, divestitures are an important aspect of these long-term project with substantial financial return.
