We Source Land for Solar Developers
SolarLandLease sources qualified landowners across the United States who are interested in leasing their land to renewable energy developers for utility-scale solar, ground-mount distributed generation solar, community solar, and battery storage projects. Our database currently includes hundreds of landowners in 47 states with almost 1 million acres available.
Landowners find our website through organic searches or as a result of targeted marketing campaigns. Once on our website, landowners provide their contact information, the property location, acreage available, and additional information. We qualify landowner submissions for proximity to interconnection infrastructure, topography and other factors, and then make these leads available to suitable developers.

How are landowner leads priced?
For utility-scale projects, leads are priced on a per-acre basis. Smaller projects (typically 10 MW or less) have a fixed lead price per project. The price varies based on state and/or ISO/RTO. Payment schedules are broken into up to three development milestones, aligned with the level of developer value and risk at different points in the development process.
Are the same leads offered to multiple developers?
No. Our contracts with developers are exclusive per a designated region (states or ISO/RTOs) and targeted project capacity (e.g., <5 MWac). This gives developers a right of first refusal on any leads supplied within that region and capacity range. Leads rejected due to fatal flaws are removed from our database. Only leads that are rejected for non-flaw reasons are then made available to other developers.
How does SolarLandLease qualify leads?
The leads we offer developers meet a baseline set of qualification criteria. For example, the properties will be relatively flat, clear of tall trees, near transmission/distribution lines or a substation, and not in a floodplain. Developers may specify additional qualification criteria that can be assessed through custom online form fields or through follow-up calls with landowners.
Can SolarLandLease help me find landowners in specific regions?
Absolutely. In addition to leads that we source organically through our website, SolarLandLease can run targeted online and offline marketing campaigns to source landowners in regions of interest.
