About this Event

Landowners, especially farmland owners and farm operators, are being approached to lease farmland to a solar energy company. Before signing on the dotted line, everyone is encouraged to understand how the process actually works. Most often, once a contract is signed, it and the terms it contains are binding.

Join Ulster County CCE for Navigating Solar Leases and the Solar Development Process, a Zoom meeting for farmers and rural landowners to answer questions about solar leasing.
