Leasing farmland to solar energy operators for an initial twenty year term, with an option for a further twenty years, has the potential to secure your family's financial future. And this is particularly relevant where your children have career aspirations that go beyond the family farmer, such that renewable solar energy provides one of the best uses of the farmland without having to actual work the land. Nonetheless, not every lease arrangement for the installation of a solar project on the family's farmland is as lucrative as it appears to have been presented.

Many landowners who are contemplating leasing their farmland to solar energy operators view such a move as an effective way of insuring their family's financial future. The harsh reality, however, is that you might be denying your family the full extent of the solar energy lease arrangement or even potentially scuttle them entirely. This might come as a brutal shock, especially to those who have already signed off on a solar option and lease agreement, and whether this has been done intentionally or not, you need to assume control of the situation and insure that your family's future is in fact secured through your commitment to renewable solar energy. Otherwise, you are simply entrusting your family's future to considerable uncertainty, given the significant 'oversights' and inadequacies that are contained in all too many solar option and lease agreements that have not been effectively scrutinized and negotiated by lawyers for the landowner.

At Neufeld Legal P.C., we have seen far too many legal agreements that are presented to landowners that fail to provide the financial returns and/or security that was anticipated. And given the implications, these matters have to be dealt with swiftly and effectively, otherwise you and your family will be vulnerable to an unrepetent contract that is legally binding and will work against your interests in every respect possible. The importance of asserting legal control for the benefit of your family therefore cannot be understated.

So for those landowners seeking experienced legal services pertaining to the leasing of their family's 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.
