Programs on Solar Leases Available to Landowners

— Written By

From: Theodore A. Feitshans

Given the urgency with which landowners are seeking information about solar leasing we have partnered to provide presentations suitable for landowners. These presentations may also be of interest to Extension personnel that wish to know more about solar leasing. The solar leasing portions of these presentations are presented by either me or my colleague, Molly Brewer. Attached are program brochures for all programs except the VAD training for which I have provided a link below.
