Solar Leases

As with groundwater transactions, solar leases, along with related option and easement agreements, are a developing part of Texas industry. Solar Energy Companies are leasing rural land at a rapid rate in Texas. Our office works to ensure that the landowner receives the appropriate compensation and enters into a lease agreement that protects the owner’s property throughout the lengthy lease terms involved in solar energy production. While an initial offer may seem attractive, we consider a variety of facets of leases:

  • Proper royalty and rental terms
  • Surface protection
  • Term negotiation
  • A host of other terms solar companies try to avoid to disadvantage the landowner
