Webinar: Solar farm leases: What you need to know

Have you considered turning some of your land into a solar farm but didn’t have the time to look into it? Or maybe it all sounds too complex?

Depending on the suitability of your land, a leased solar farm could provide a stable alternative income source and developers are looking for sites.

In this live Q&A webinar session we cover the following topics:

  • What makes an ideal site?
  • How much do developers pay?
  • What are the tax implications for you and your business?
  • What are the steps in the solar development process?
  • Who is responsible for maintenance?
  • Can the site be grazed?
  • What happens at the end of the agreement?

Hosted by Suzie Horne, business editor, Farmers Weekly, our experts are:

  • Paul Hewett, CEO, Belltown Power UK
  • James Morton, senior associate, Sworders
  • Guy Parker, director, Wychwood Biodiversity
  • Ralph Rayner, managing director, The Ashcombe Estate
