What is a wind turbine lease? When a wind energy company identifies the land it wants to use to build a wind farm, they approach the owners of the land – usually farmers– to see if they are willing to lease their land for a specific period of time. Through wind turbine leasing, energy companies have the ability to construct and operate wind turbines on the leased property for a designated length of time. During this time, the property owners will receive continuous rent payments from the wind energy company.
How are wind turbines leases valued? There are several factors that determine the value of wind turbine leasing. One factor is the types of wind turbines that are installed. Bigger turbines usually generate a higher rent payment. A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between a wind energy company and an electricity provider is the underlying contract that generates revenue for the wind farm. High capacity wind turbines in a prime location will generate the most power, and therefore command the highest wind turbine prices.
If you receive rent for one or more wind turbines on your property, then LDC Infrastructure is interested in speaking to you. We provide financial solutions through wind turbine lease buyouts. In exchange for your lease rights, we provide a significant lump sum of cash, allowing you to convert your lease rights into immediate capital. You keep your property. We simply acquire certain rights to the lease.
Many of our clients – some of whom are your neighbors – find that selling their lease for an upfront cash payment creates superior long term value when they invest their capital in a business, farm or real estate. Others use their cash for college or medical expenses, to reduce debt or fund their retirement.
