Real Estate

Developing a successful wind project requires the ability to bring together all of the stakeholders.

EcoEnergy recognizes the importance of building consensus as the key to a successful development process. Our real estate department is uniquely structured to ensure that our agreements serve the needs of the landowners, financial institutions, neighbors, local & state governments, and our partners.

We do this by:

  • Combining the steps of early stage project development with stakeholder identification
  • Focusing efforts on addressing stakeholder’s concerns
  • Presenting and reflecting the development process in our agreements
  • Investing the additional time to include legal, technical and management expertise
  • Creating a process that results in mutually beneficial terms for landowners and project development.

Landowner agreements

At the heart of our discussions with landowners are the options to lease, leases, easements, and other agreements prepared by our Real Estate Department. We work closely with the landowners to introduce, present, explain, and administer the agreements required for wind energy development.
