Understand the nuts and bolts of solar energy projects and how to best craft deal documents that work for all parties involved.

The solar energy industry in the United States has been growing steadily and is here to stay. In fact, more people in the United States are employed in solar electricity generation than the generation of electricity by coal, oil and gas combined. The leasing of land, rooftops and parking lots has become a popular source of revenue for property owners. In addition, anyone that consumes electricity, or has capital to invest, can benefit from a solar energy project. Professionals negotiating solar leases and related documents must take into account varied and important legal and business considerations. Parties must consider whether a lease, license or easement is the proper vehicle for their specific project. Once the proper vehicle is chosen, the parties must weigh the competing interests of the various stakeholders regarding important issues such as casualty, assignment rights, maintenance, indemnifications, taxes, performance guarantees and insurance, to name a few. Careful crafting of the deal documents is critical to ensure the parties are getting the deal they expected.

This topic will explain the nuts and bolts of a solar energy project and how to best craft deal documents that work for all parties involved. The content will examine various project structures and explore practical considerations for investors, developers, lenders, site hosts and governmental entities involved in solar energy projects. If you are about to embark on a solar energy project, or if you are currently involved in structuring or implementing a solar project, you will benefit from the insight and practical advice provided in this material.
