Alternative energy is currently at the forefront of utility and energy law in Iowa. From wind and solar energy agreements to pipeline easements, landowners are faced with critical issues in balancing realizing income from wind and solar energy production while protecting their land for years to come. In wind and solar energy agreements landowners are asked to commit their land for many years in an agreement that may allow the developer to make significant changes during the term of the agreement. These and other issues should be negotiated, or at the very least understood, before the landowner signs the agreement.
Brick Gentry understands these issues. Clients have access to our full team, including our agricultural and real estate attorneys who have years of experience representing farmers and farmland owners and that experience is invaluable in representing landowners considering alternative energy agreements and easements.
