A qualified site with surplus land can generate revenue. A Solar Land Lease (a.k.a. Solar Access Easement) is a tremendous opportunity to use your land to produce long term, stable revenue!

Community Solar Opportunity

Several states, including New York, are committed to growing their renewable energy production to an ambitious goal of 100% renewables by 2030. This requires solar to be developed at a large scale in a short period of time. Surplus land will be a significant resource for these projects resulting in an immediate opportunity for landowners to benefit directly from the community solar opportunity.

The Time is Now!

The time is now to participate in this wave of community solar development. Aggressive goals set by these states have mandated full support over this effort with new legislation and dedicated resources.

Does your land qualify?

We’ll do the research. US Light Energy will evaluate your site with a thorough assessment including pre-application with the utility, we will determine whether your land is a qualifying site.

Our Process

Through our years of experience, U.S. Light Energy has developed a unique feasibility process in which we analyze multiple aspects of every property to drive the most value per acre while positioning a project for success. We examine the following opportunity to use your land to produce long-term, stable revenue!

Utility Infrastructure

Our analysis begins with the most important aspects of every site, which is to ensure that the energy produced by our projects can be utilized by the surrounding communities. This includes a check for proximity to 3-phase power, and available capacity of the existing circuit and substation. This review allows us to understand what size system and type of technology may be possible at your location.

Environmental Considerations

Once we confirm the feasibility of interconnecting a project to the local utility, we then examine the property for environmental constraints such as forestation, wetlands, critical habitats, and other factors which may limit the developable area or otherwise dictate the potential system size.

Local Zoning and Land Use Considerations

Equally important to the above screens, we perform a review of the local law to understand the rules and regulations that govern these types of projects within your neighborhood. This allows us to identify critical issues which may prevent the project from being permitted. When necessary, we work with local officials to develop a path to approval. We feel that with every project, it is important to educate the community about this new technology, and we strive to set an example with every project that we develop.
