Wind power is one of the big forms of alternative energy. Huge wind turbines, with blade spans of more than 200 feet, catch the wind and turn it into electrical power. Many land owners in areas that have regular winds are renting out their land to power companies to build wind turbines on it for a fee. Renting out your land for wind harvesting may require that you prove you have constant wind, enough acreage and a proximity to power lines, though.

- Proof of wind reliability
- Proximity to power lines
Collect the statistics about your land and how viable it is for building wind turbines. You should know how much acreage you have available and how close the nearest power lines are, and you should have some type of testing done that shows you have a constant supply of wind on your land.
Approach a power company in your area with an interest in building wind turbine fields. These companies will be talking with people in your area that have appropriate land, and they may come to you first. If not, you need to contact the company and ask if it would be interested in building wind turbines on land rented from you.
Work out an arrangement with the power company. If the company is interested in using your land, then you will need to arrange a rental agreement that satisfies both parties and that will be set for a certain period of time.
