Sustainable Investors is a Midwest-based company involved in the acquisition and management of leasehold and easement agreements. Our primary area of focus is the renewable energy sector including utility-scale wind and solar projects. We will also consider opportunities in oil, natural gas, pipelines, transmission lines, water, and other segments that involve long-term lease and/or easement agreements with correlating annual payments.
Sustainability, by definition, is the intersection of people, the environment, and economic success. These core segments are the pillars of sustainability and are represented by the three rings found in Sustainable Investors’ name.
“People” includes society at-large, communities, and our individual landowners. “Environment” involves our natural resources, energy sources, and the planet as a whole. “Economic Success” is the financial gain of the entire economy as well as our individual landowners and investors. Sustainable Investors’ business model creates life changing financial impacts to families while also offering a return to our investment partners.
We strive to become an industry leader in sustainability by “investing in your future now.” Please contact us today to learn more about how you can become part of this important mission.
We invest in energy assets, specifically long-term leasehold and easement agreements. The majority of utility-scale energy project owners do not actually own the underlying land or the “wind rights” or “sun rights” in the case of wind and solar projects. Therefore, project developers typically execute a land lease and easement agreement to secure these rights from individual landowners. These agreements are considered annual operational costs throughout the life of the project.
Sustainable Investors offers landowners participating in these projects with the unique opportunity to “cash-out” with an upfront lump sum payment over a specific term versus waiting for smaller annual payments. This creates a more substantial and meaningful financial opportunity to the landowners involved in our program while also providing our investment partners with a long-term, low-risk investment opportunity backed by the energy assets and the project’s creditworthy owner and off-taker (e.g. a utility). Sustainable Investors typically acquires the rights to these annual payments over a specified term through a lease assignment (“buyout”) agreement that is negotiated directly with the landowner.
If you are participating in an energy project and have a lease or easement on your land, please contact us today to learn more about how Sustainable Investors can benefit your financial future.
