Some Solar Companies offer a “Letter of Intent” instead of a “Solar Lease Option Agreement”. Letters of Intent must be carefully reviewed as they typically include proposed foundational terms and items to be included or addressed in a potential Solar Lease Agreement. Letters of Intent must be scrutinized to ensure that the landlord/property owner is not permanently committing to any terms set forth in that Letter of Intent. Some Letters of Intent are binding such that terms agreed upon at the initial stage must be incorporated into the final Solar Lease Agreement. Letters of Intent can be non-binding, where the parties are not held to the terms contained in the Letter of Intent. Before any landlord/property owner signs a Letter of Intent, they must understand whether it is a binding or non-binding Letter of Intent and must avoid binding themselves to any mandatory terms that will hurt them in the future. Letters of Intent are serious contracts and should not be signed without consultation with an attorney experienced in Solar Leases.
