Solar Project Development

AHC has represented and advised various participants in solar energy projects – utilities and power purchasers, developers, and landowners.

–          Utilities and Power Purchasers

We advise utilities and power purchasers in connection with their purchase, procurement, or construction of solar plants.  For more information, view our Renewable Energy Project Development page.

–          Renewable Energy Developers

We have also advised renewable energy developers in securing the necessary contracts to bring a solar project from an idea to commercial operation.  For more information, view our Renewable Energy Project Development page and Power and Utility Transactions page.

–          Landowners and Farmers

AHC advises landowners in negotiating solar leases with developers.  Because we have seen solar projects from all the angles, we know the key issues and important contract provisions to protect landowners’ interests.  See Attorney David Cook’s article entitled “Leasing Agricultural Property to Solar Developers Requires Careful Attention to Details,” published in the USDA Rural Cooperative Magazine, September/October 2016.
