Solar power has risen to the forefront of the media due to many well-known companies investing in Solar energy. Solar power is clean, renewable, practical, and efficient. And best of all, Solar power has a very limited impact on the environment. The cost of Solar Farms continues to come down as Solar panel prices drop due to new and better technology. For the past several decades, scientists have been hard at work researching, testing and creating devices that not only capture the sunlight, but convert it into clean, usable energy to power homes and businesses. Although there is still a great deal of work to be done in the field of Solar power, over the next few years Solar Farms are going to become a much more common sight.

As renewables are moving from niche to mainstream, the industry is facing a paradigm shift in cost, quality, complexity, and scale. Solar Farms are primarily privately owned projects that require large tracts of land. Many of the WHEELHOUSE agents maintain Real Estate Licenses which are required for the Fee Simple purchase process needed for Solar projects. These projects may entail a number of various power purchase agreements, lease agreements or land usage agreements. Locating a suitable site for Solar Farms is a particularly complex issue. Criteria for Solar Farm selection includes finding land with the proper slope, correct soils, rainfall, vegetation, security conditions, proximity to High Capacity Transmission Lines and adequate power grids. Conservation and environmental impact, agricultural concerns, Right of Way construction, and governmental and military requirements are other complex issues that may have to be addressed. The WHEELHOUSE team can assist our customers with all of these difficult issues ensuring your Solar Farm project is a success.
