Save the Date: Renewable Energy Law for the Agriculture Community

Many farms and ranches throughout the country are capitalizing on available renewable energy options. I will be moderating a Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) webinar on October 10, 2013 at 1pm ET for the American Bar Association, General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Division’s Agriculture Law Committee on renewable energy law. The CLE will discuss a myriad renewable energy law issues relating to agriculture land, including:

(1) solar power purchase agreements (e.g., construction risk allocation, production guarantees, lender and financing issues, and common defaults and remedies);

(2) solar lease agreements (e.g., easements, alternative land rights, title issues, water rights for concentrated solar power projects);

(3) wind lease agreements (e.g., current trends and historical context, stages of wind energy development, considerations for agricultural landowners, legal considerations for wind leases); and,

(4) transmission and pipeline easements (e.g., understanding bargaining power, common procedures, construction issues, operation and maintenance concerns, compensation, and potential liability).

I have rounded up some amazing faculty members:

Kevin Erickson, Senior Associate at Stoel Rives, LLP;

Jennifer Martin, Partner at Stoel Rives, LLP;

Katy Brack Morrow, Senior Associate at Budd-Falen Law Offices, LLC; and

Shannon Ferrell, Associate Professor at Oklahoma State University.

Stay tuned for the registration form (but in the meantime- save the date).  The CLE is co-sponsored by the American Agriculture Law Association (“AALA”); therefore, AALA members can go for GP Solo Section Price.  A reduced price for law students is available upon request.
