Workshop: Negotiating Renewable Energy Leases

Thursday, March 23, 2017

As Alberta moves towards the goal of having 30% of Alberta’s energy come from renewable sources by 2030, a greater number of landowners are being approached by developers to lease land for the establishment of wind and solar farms. Many landowners are excited about the opportunities, but it is important to understand that negotiating a renewable energy lease is not the same as negotiating with oil and gas.   

Following the release of our publication Negotiating Renewable Energy Leases, the Farmers’ Advocate Office (FAO) is doing a series of workshops to help equip landowners with the knowledge they need to negotiate these types of agreements and work with their professional advisors. The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) will be in attendance to speak to the regulatory process. These workshops are intended for situations where land is leased to a developer; they are not designed to provide information on micro-generation for personal use.
