Community Solar: land, water, rooftop, parking lots

What's the Process for Landowners?
What's the Process for Landowners
Property is identified and evaluated to see if it meets the criteria for hosting.
A preliminary discussion regarding terms will take place between a member of the SWA team and the landowner and/or representative.
With a signed agreement in place, the interested parties and SWA will vet the details with the regulatory authorities as well as the local municipality. The landowner does not participate in this process.
If property qualifies, the most current land survey is requested from the land owner.
Once the macro terms have been agreed upon SWA will work with the interested parties to draw up a formal agreement for the land use of the property.
**Important note: The engaged company pays all incremental tax increases related to the hosting of the facility during the Operations Period in addition to associated permitting / interconnection and insurance costs, etc.
Assign-ability: You are free to sell the property during operations period, the battery facility carries with the property.
