User's Guide for Renewable Energy Electricity Generating Facilities' Land Use Agreement (LUA) Model

The Guide focuses on the long-term land use phase for the installation and operation of a renewable energy project. It discusses topics that are common to any lease and provides additional explanation of some clauses that can have different alternatives commonly used in the industry or proposed by the author (e.g., provisions on fee payments, removal and site restoration). It also covers the phase preceding the long-term land use phase, the option phase, and provides guidance with regard to Option Agreements for Site Evaluation including thoughts on how to avoid land speculation and profiteering as well as information on Easements.
