Thank you for supporting LeaseGen!
We started our business to address a growing need – informed evaluation of wind lease revenue streams for people buying or selling land with turbines on it. Our core business is growing, and we are now working in related areas, including on evaluations of overall lease economic structures for landowners considering a wind or solar lease and on wind rights sales. And with over 75,000 megawatts of wind and over 35,000 megawatts of solar in the US (and more coming), our future is promising.
We also want to tell you about some of our developments. Our main focus in 2016 was to update our lease revenue models. With input from industry experts, we expanded our models to, for instance, include solar lease revenue valuations. We also added features that allow us to simultaneously evaluate different lease structures, under various scenarios and considering any number of risk factors.
Our expanded models were put to work in 2016. Among other things:
- we evaluated future revenue in connection with a number of operating projects;
- we evaluated future revenue in connection with multiple wind rights sales; and,
- we advised landowners presented with wind leases on the value of different compensation structures, including for projects in the US and internationally.
We had modest business goals for 2016, but with your help and with the help of our industry expert consultants, we exceeded those goals. And we look forward to continued growth.
We appreciate your support this past year, and we wish you the best for 2017.
