You own the land -
YOU ARE ALWAYS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS ON THAT LAND!
NOTE: Every possibility noted in this four part series has already been experienced somewhere by landowners!
You need to think more than money…think liabilities.
The land owner is always responsible for the taxes on the land.
The land converts from an ag exemption to commercial/industrial tax status once construction has started. There will be a 3 year roll back on that new tax value. The solar company may offer to pay the tax.
It will take time to get an ag exemption back. Everything has to be removed and soil remediated to get it back to agriculture again.
The solar company should be paying property taxes on all equipment but sometimes the owner may be held responsible. What happens if the company fails to pay them?
If the solar company does not pay their contractors or worker, liens can be put on the equipment and on the land.
