You can get a substantial lump sum payment for your property interests. No more dealing with facility developers (that may be undercapitalized) and the other risks and complexities associated with the cash flows coming from wind energy, solar energy or energy storage assets:
Selling your property interests may also deliver tax advantages. If you’ve had title to the property interests for a long enough period, a sale would be subject to long-term capital gains tax, which is significantly lower than the upper levels of ordinary income tax rates you’d be paying on lease payments. Additionally, a sale of your property could give you an opportunity to execute a 1031 exchange, a way to defer payment of capital gains taxes by using the proceeds to purchase another property, maximizing realized value.
Of course, you also have the option to gain the benefits of selling and retain the benefits of ownership, if you decide to sell a portion of your property interests or lease payments.
