  • Solar Energy Lease Agreement Considerations

    Published on February 17, 2021

    MI Ag Ideas to Grow With 2021 - Sustainability Session: With the change in Administrations in Washington, there is likely to be renewed interest in expanding renewable energy resources in the countryside. MSU Extension’s Charles Gould, Michigan State University Extension Bioenergy Educator, has been in the forefront of investigating ways to include solar, wind and biogas generation of power to reduce energy costs to producers. This session will focus on things to consider if you are approached by a renewable energy company to build solar generation on your or adjacent farms. We have asked Charles to discuss how these may impact your operation (or how to minimize the impacts) and what the implications may be for your neighbors and property tax valuation.
