Renewable Energy

The State Land Board encourages renewable energy development on state trust land where it is compatible with other uses, does not negatively impact natural values and results in a market rate return to the trusts. The agency generally utilizes ground leases to accommodate solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and biomass/bioenergy projects although other options may be considered.  For questions or assistance, please contact Christopher Smith at 303-866-3454 x3327 ( or David Rodenberg at 303-866-3454 ext. 3328 (
