Representing Landowners in Wind Energy Projects


Byron, Alexandria, MN - These seminars will cover key legal issues involved in representing landowners who are participating in wind energy projects


Project Structures and Ownership
Available federal tax incentives drive the structure of wind energy project entities. Learn how these tax incentives impact local ownership interests.

Wind Easements and Leases
Get an in-depth breakdown of wind energy project site control documents and title and survey issues relating to wind energy projects, from the perspective of the landowner.

Permitting Requirements
Gain an understanding of key permits required to site wind projects and how local landowners can participate in these processes.

Estate Planning
The unique nature of "real property" creates its own set of issues in estate planning for land owners who sign wind easements and leases. Oftentimes these issues go unresolved. This presentation will discuss planning considerations and common transfer strategies that you may use for this special asset.
