How much income can a wind turbine generate for a landowner?

Easement terms can vary widely, based on a number of factors, such as the

  • available wind resource
  • accessibility to transmission lines and
  • per-kilowatt price that utility customers are willing to pay for wind power.

Providing easements on small portions of the overall acreage for siting wind turbines can subsidize poor crop conditions and help landowners hold on to family farms and ranches.
