    Things Commonly Found in a Wind Contract

    These items will not be in every company’s contract, but they are commonly found in most. There will be a non-exclusive easement covering your entire property, not just the footprint of the turbine and the access road.

Major seed companies will be less likely to grow seed corn near turbines. They need to be expedient with aerial applications which turbines hinder. Turbines can interfere with GPS, drones and any newer technology that requires a consistent signal. They do not offer nearly enough . . .

    Wind versus Water: the impact of ridgeline wind on water resources

He will describe . . .
