Rural Wealth Creation and Emerging Energy Industries: Lease and Royalty Payments to Farm Households and Businesses
Jeremy J. Weber (au); Jason P. Brown (au); John Pender (au)
New technologies for accessing energy resources, changes in global energy markets, and government policies have encouraged growth in the natural gas and wind industries in the 2000s. The growth has offered new opportunities for wealth creation in many rural areas. At a local level, households who own land or mineral rights can benefit from energy development through lease and royalty payments. Using nationally-representative data on U.S. farms from 2011, the authors assess the consumption, investment, and wealth implications of the $2.3 billion in lease and royalty payments that energy companies paid to farm businesses. They estimate that the savings of current energy payments combined with the effect of payments on land values added $104,000 in wealth for the average recipient farm. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
