For some of our clients, the decision to sell their wind lease was an easy decision to make because they needed cash. Whether it was to cover a medical expense, tax bill, college tuition or debt reduction, Landmark Dividend purchased their wind lease, closed the transaction quickly, and put a lump sum cash payment into their hands to cover their important financial need.
But what if you own a wind energy lease and don’t need cash right now? Why would you sell your lease under those circumstances? For the majority of our wind energy clients, selling their lease was never about needing money right now, but rather the need to generate the best possible growth over the long term.
To fully appreciate this concept, consider your wind 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 wind energy lease represents a portion of your personal wealth. And like any financial asset, it carries risk.
Although rent reduction or decommissioning of your wind energy 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 wind lease, it means that investing the cash proceeds from the sale of your lease – whether in real estate, securities 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.
Landmark Dividend is the largest and most experienced ground lease acquisition company in the nation, and the only company in our industry that is the general partner of a publicly traded company, Landmark Infrastructure (NASDAQ: LMRK). We have helped thousands of wind energy landlords achieve greater financial security, and we are known in the industry for our straightforward, streamlined closing process.

We freely share our vast knowledge about the wind industry, local rents and market trends with our clients.
