The Real Value of Your Solar Lease

Did you know that your solar ground lease has a liquid value? Although you are receiving rent payments from the solar farm operator for the use of your land, a solar lease buyout is another way to tap the value of your ground lease. It allows you to receive the current value of your lease in a lump sum cash payment that can be used for immediate financial needs or longer term investments.

For some of our solar lease clients, the need for immediate cash was the driving factor behind their decision to monetize their lease. Whether it was to cover a medical expense, tax bill, college tuition or debt reduction, Landmark Dividend purchased their solar lease, closed the transaction quickly, and put a lump sum cash payment into their hands to cover their important financial need.

A solar lease buyout is also ideal for those who recognize that the real value of a solar lease lies in its potential growth as a cash investment. To fully appreciate this concept, consider your solar lease for what it really is: a financial asset. Like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, retirement accounts, bank CDs or any other financial asset that you may own, a solar lease represents a portion of your personal wealth. And like any financial asset, it carries risk.

Although rent reduction or decommissioning of your solar site is possible, the risk is statistically low. The far greater risk is opportunity cost. That means losing out on the opportunity to earn better growth from a financial asset. Applied to your solar lease, it means that investing the cash proceeds from the sale of your lease – whether in real estate, land, equities or a business – can often provide significantly stronger growth over the next 10, 20 or 30 years, compared to the cumulative monthly rent in that same time period.

These concepts are more than likely generating a lot of questions in your head. We understand. Selling your solar lease is no small decision. We’re here to help you make best decision.
