The solar power we generate will be sold directly to the local electricity provider. With that being said, the power will remain in the area where it’s generated, meaning local homes and businesses will be partially powered by locally produced clean energy.
ESA Renewables is responsible for all the costs associated with the assessment, development, property taxes, construction costs, ongoing operation and maintenance costs, and deconstruction costs. Once the end of the lease has been reached, we will be responsible for removing all the equipment and solar panels from the solar farm and return the site to its original condition.
Our local and experienced team of professionals at ESA Renewables will be responsible for obtaining permits and paying for any of the associated fees.
No. While the solar farm will produce a consistent, quiet hum during the day when producing solar power, the sound will not be heard outside the perimeter of the site. Furthermore, at night, there will be no noises.
Solar farms, by nature of their design, have a low profile, and ESA Renewables will make a concerted effort in partnership with the County’s guidance to incorporate a vegetation buffer largely conceals the site from neighboring properties.
We follow local, state and national fire code safety standards to ensure that there is no increased risk of fire with the solar farm and associated equipment.
ESA Renewables prioritizes the environment in our business operations. As a result, we purchase equipment that is made of nontoxic materials and pose no hazard to your environment. In general, solar panels are a safe technology (largely made of glass, sand and aluminum) that produces electricity without creating toxic or greenhouse gas emissions.
ESA Renewables will remove all the equipment, fencing and inverters when the solar project reaches the end of its life. The land can then be utilized for agriculture, real estate development or other purposes.
The development of a solar farm depends upon many factors, including the site characteristics and the local jurisdiction’s application and approvals process. Once approvals are in place, construction of the solar farm could take three to four months, depending on the size of the solar farm. From signing the land lease to the construction completion date, we anticipate anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
