You own the land BUT!-
YOU ARE ALWAYS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS ON THAT LAND!
You need to think more than money…think liabilities.
There are really no actual costs to date on how much it will cost to decommission an industrial solar field. It is speculated that it could cost between 1 – 2 times the cost of installation. It will be substantial! There are not many places to recycle the solar panels (and recycling is much more expensive than just putting the solar panels in a land fill - not so green). If the solar company were to go bankrupt, you cannot remove any equipment until there has been a lawsuit to claim ownership. Family members and/or heirs may inherit a huge debt.
Counties may end up owning the site:
If taxes are not paid, the county may end up owning the site eventually. The solar company claims they are targeting land owners who are retired so they can pass the land onto family members. There may be nothing to pass onto family members.
There can be lawsuits from neighbors who may experience water runoff or environmental issues, etc. The land owner is responsible!
