Large-scale Community & Utility Ground Mounted
UTILITY-SCALE & COMMUNITY SOLAR DEVELOPMENT
A Solar Land Lease can create
long-term financial security for Landowners by turning unused land into a source of recurring revenue, while also preserving the integrity of the land and allowing Landowners to retain ownership for future family generations.
Local Communities will benefit from reduced-rate energy costs and the generation of their own clean energy for future generations. Underutilized farm land, landfills or quarry land can be ideal land for solar development.
ABOVEgrid is a partnership comprised of industry leaders providing premier in-house financing, site origination, engineering & project management services to clientele wishing to develop state-of-the-art Community & Utility-scale solar projects.
Both Community & Utility Solar projects are essential in meeting the growing demands of residents, customers and municipal goals of carbon emission reduction using renewable energy. Our landowners benefit from a long-term, predictable income for the use of their property, while directly participating in meeting their community's clean energy goals.
