The Department of Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics at Michigan State University has published a document entitled "Landowner Guidelines for Evaluating Wind Energy Production Leases". It is aimed at landowners across the country.
This worksheet is designed to help landowners evaluate some important considerations when reviewing a wind energy lease and/or easement agreement. It provides comments on alternatives to lease provisions, where appropriate, and will help walk a landowner through the often complex multi-page agreements. Click here for the .pdf file.
