At AES, we’ve always been motivated by improving the lives and making an impact in the communities where we work.
We partner with farmers, hospitals, universities, cities, youth programs and more to ensure our communities can see a happier, healthier future coming to life right before their eyes. Landowners play a key role in our communities.
We present landowners with new opportunities, such as leasing options, to capitalize on the value of their land while retaining ownership throughout the project life cycle. For many, this is a welcome complement to current land use and an opportunity to diversify their land investment while hedging against volatile commodity prices. For others, our projects offer an income stream and land-use option where none otherwise existed.
Because at the end of each day, we care about generating positive and long-lasting impact in the communities where we work… and live.
Built on trusted relationships
Our teams and landowners work together, in partnership, from the beginning stages of site discussions, through permitting, construction, and operation. The team/landowner relationship begins early, is built on trust, includes open communication, and yields mutual success.
Responsible use of the land
Leasing options provide landowners with an opportunity for an added income stream. Our farmer-friendly development approaches allow for the ability to continue crop production while generating solar-produced electricity or rejuvenate degraded soil to re-farm the land later.
Making a positive community impact
Our landowner partnership projects support the transition away from fossil fuels from reducing emissions in our backyard to strengthening regional grid resiliency and leaving our communities a bit greener and cleaner. We always take pride in making a positive impact where we work and live.
