Learn About the Eid Family Solar Farm: Case Study

David and Loni are third-generation farmers in Montevideo, Minnesota with a 46-acre plot of available land for solar. After 40 years of working the land, they were open to exploring other sources of income and changing the use of their land.

• Lease a portion of their land to OYA Solar to develop a community solar project

• Produce 9.5 GWh in power annually (approximately 950 homes)

• Provides cost-savings of $5.5 million over 25 years to an early energy subscriber

What does it take to get started on your solar farm lease?

1. We assess your land for a solar farm at no cost to you.  We look for proximity to three-phase power lines and substations among other factors.

2. Provide the results of a land assessment to you. If it makes sense for us to invest in your land, then we offer you a land lease for a solar farm. If we cannot develop your land at the moment, it may make sense later on. We will keep you in our database and contact you if it changes.

3. Meet with you and offer a lease. Once we have a lease ready, we will meet with you to discuss it. We encourage all landowners to review the lease closely and ask us questions at any time.

4. Sign the lease. After you sign the lease, we take it on from there. Our team of experts take care of all the permitting and environmental regulations at no cost to you.
