Pilot Agreement New York

To date (September 2020), no commercial wind projects have been built in New York State without a pilot agreement providing significant tax breaks for the developer`s real estate. Once a solar lease is signed, that landlord is no longer a farmer, he is now the owner and their new tenant is a power plant. Farmers are hard-working people who produce our food and we have supported them all. The proof… We all do the lack of property taxes that builders have made for them to benefit from their property tax exemption. Developer. They must be forced to pay the full property tax on their valuation, just like other businesses and property owners. An industrial energy contract (at the same time as so-called good neighbouring contracts) gives the solar or wind developer control of the land and excludes the landowner from any right of review of the developer`s intended use. Together, these leases allow a company, not individual owners, to control a very large lot in our cities. Their new little neighbour in the city will now be a large corporate tenant who operates an industrial power plant. If you`re having problems with your new business neighbor, you should now call a 1-800 claim hotline elsewhere to talk to someone you don`t know. It condemns our communities to permanent ineligibility for more attractive economic development opportunities through the use of liberal setbacks and noise protection rules that all other landowners have used for agricultural purposes, not developers.

Pilotes agreements provide developers of major projects with significant tax breaks for real estate.
