Some Solar Companies will provide the landlord/property owner with an “Option for Solar Lease Agreement”. An Option Agreement provides the Solar Company a period of time, usually one to three years, to conduct title reviews, property surveys, feasibility studies, permitting reviews, potential site plan development, efforts to secure financing for the project, and potentially seek regulatory approval. The Solar Company may also contact neighbors, or the local electric company will potentially sell electricity in order to confirm the feasibility of the project and whether the Option should be exercised to move forward with the Solar Lease. The landlord/property owner must negotiate to maximize compensation during the Option Term from while simultaneously negotiating to minimize the duration of the Option Term to provide them with the most leverage.
