Landowners and E.ON
Working With Landowners
We have experience working on ranches, farmland and reclaimed mines
E.ON understands it cannot develop renewable projects without the cooperation and participation of landowners like you. We put a premium on understanding your current land use and working with you to ensure that a renewable energy project is compatible with your existing operations. E.ON traditionally works with landowners to reach an agreement that provides a defined development term and, once the project is constructed, a long-term operations period. Typically, landowners receive rent during the development period and ongoing revenue from the sale of energy produced during the operations term. This structure ensures that our interests are aligned. We are incentivized to build the project as quickly as possible, and to find the best market for the power.
Significant investment in local economies
We provide clean energy, jobs and new opportunities
E.ON is committed to working with landowners, like you, to maintain existing uses of your property. We are focused on building a long-term partnership with you and the community where you live. Please contact us to learn more.
Constructing a renewable energy project
Working with landowners to maintain existing uses of your property
Building a renewable energy project generally takes 6 to 12 months. For example, construction of a wind farm consists of improving or installing roads capable of transporting turbine parts, excavating and installing foundations, erecting tower sections, installing nacelles, hubs, and blades with cranes, trenching underground cable, and installing a limited amount of overhead transmission line. On all of its projects, E.ON uses modern, utility scale wind turbines that operate smoothly and quietly even in high winds.
