New Wind Lease Option for Rural Landowners

October 16, 2020

According to the American Wind Energy Association, America’s wind power has more than tripled in the past decade. This makes wind energy, with a capacity of over 100,000 MW, the greatest source of renewable energy in the United States. Texas leads all states in the amount of wind power, as well as the number of people (25,000) who are currently employed in the wind industry.

Since wind energy projects require project owners to lease land from a vast number of different landowners, farm and ranch communities nationwide are also benefiting from the growth of the renewable energy sector by leasing portions of their land needed to locate these wind farms.

Considering the size of this growing market it is not surprising that a secondary market is emerging in relation to these long-term wind leases that pay rent in annual installments over many years.

We at Madison Street Energy have developed a process that gives landowners the opportunity to receive an immediate lump sum payment in exchange for their lease rights. Instead of having to wait for the typical long-term payout, over twenty to fifty years, landowners can put their earnings to work now, reinvesting in their land and businesses. Once the rights to future wind lease payments are assigned to MSE, any future risks of nonpayment by the wind project owner are no longer the landowners to bear.
