ClearPath manages every step—from payments, acquiring the proper permits, construction, and regular maintenance.
What is Solar Land Development?
A solar farm is a large-scale installation of photovoltaic panels. These panels form a solar array consisting of ground-mounted solar panels installed across large areas. The solar farm will then provide power to the local electric grid.
As a landowner, this is an opportunity for you to lease your available land to ClearPath Energy for us to design, build, and operate a solar project for you and your community.
Hosting a solar farm is not for everyone. However, some of the benefits include protection against unpredictable farming conditions and crop prices, diversifying your revenue stream, and providing a fixed income for 25+ years.
Our experienced development team has the tools to analyze potential land for our projects. We focus on efficiency and optimization, ensuring that everything from the design to the placement is thoroughly considered.
"They're the only ones that listened to me."

Lease Your Land to ClearPath Energy
Leasing your land frees you from unpredictable weather cycles during climate change and diversifies your revenue stream. It is a great opportunity for landowners to generate stable income for 25+ years.
Get in touch to determine your land feasibility for a community solar project.
We negotiate and execute an Option to Lease or an Option to Purchase agreement with a property owner. Every site and landowner are different so we work on a case-by-case situation to meet their specific needs.
Landowners collect payments as we continue through the development phase. ClearPath manages environmental studies, project designs, secures permits, executes agreements, and constructs the project.
Once constructed, the solar farm generates power for 25-45 years. The solar farm is low maintenance and operates rain or shine. ClearPath keeps the grounds landscaped, troubleshoots any problem throughout the project lifecycle, and conducts regular maintenance.
Working with Greg has been a pleasure. We’re very happy being the landowners of a solar project.
–Louise Woodard, President of Brookfield Orchards, a 345-acre orchard and landowner
Solar has allowed me to maintain the farm as it’s been maintained in the family for four generations.”
–Ken Langevin, Farmer of a 48-acre farm and landowner of a 6.2-acre solar project developed by a principal of ClearPath Energy
5-7 acres per megawatt is needed, depending upon design. An ideal project would be 40 acres.
Site leases are 25-45 years.
Physical construction can take anywhere between 3-6 months.
The development process of permitting and utility interconnection can take an additional 12-18 months.
We work with all inquiries to determine the suitability of your land and the work required to develop a project on it.
Farming the land surrounding the project is fine. Farming between the solar arrays is a more customized solution that we can work together to determine the suitability of, depending on what type of farming you are wanting to do.
ClearPath will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the solar farm. Operation and maintenance typically requires a visit to the site a few times per year.
No! Any noise produced is minimal, below any required level of decibel disruption, and should not be disruptive.
We work with landowners, towns, and communities to ensure our projects are great fits for them. Sometimes this involves building a fence and sometimes it involves building a project off in a tucked away area. It is a priority develop our projects to be as non-invasive as possible.
