Wind Farm Leases - New Texas Law September 1st

With the proliferation of wind farms across South Texas, it's advisable to be aware of obligations on the part of the company or entity installing the equipment and responsible for its upkeep and removal at the end of the lease term.

A new bill called "Wind Power Facility Agreements" details the wind farm operator's obligations with respect to the removal of wind turbines and related items when a wind lease terminates. The bill goes into effect Sept. 1, 2019.

Here is a link to information about the bill, along with a link to the bill's specific language.
