Maximize the value of your solar or wind royalty or rental interest.

Treaty Oak buys renewable royalties and rental interests from landowners. Let us partner with you to monetize your renewable income today, freeing up cash to diversify your business interests while preserving ownership of your land.

We are here to help you turn small payments into a large, lump-sum payout.

Treaty Oak acquires royalty and rental interests underlying wind and solar facilities across the US, unlocking cash for landowners through a simple and quick transaction process. Our team has worked with hundreds of landowners, and we approach each relationship with full transparency and integrity.

Why Sell?

1. Immediate Cash Payment

Receive lump-sum cash payout now instead of waiting for monthly or annual payments over the remaining term of your lease. Continued inflation reduces the value of future rental payments, so cash upfront is worth more.

2. Reinvestment Opportunity

Diversify your holdings by investing your cash payout in other opportunities providing higher or safer returns than the remaining rental payments on your renewable lease. In addition,  when you partner with us, you keep ownership of your land!

3. Reduce Your Tax Burden

Rental or royalty income is taxed at rates as high as 37% for federal taxes alone. The cash payout can be treated as long-term capital gains, which are taxed at the current rate of 15 to 20%. Also, the proceeds can be eligible for a 1031 tax-free exchange. Please consult your own tax, legal, and accounting advisors before engaging in any transaction.

4. Risk Mitigation

After the sale, we’ll take on the long-term risk of the project, not you. Owners of wind and solar rental payments are exposed to many risks
including inflation, decommissioning, lease cancellation, operational, and political.
