 In spring 2017, the Farmers' Advocate Office (FAO) first published "Negotiating Renewable Energy Leases" to help guide Alberta landowners negotiating a lease for a wind or solar development. Created in response to a high number of calls regarding renewable energy in fall 2016, the publication covers everything from weed control to option to lease agreements to community engagement.

Following the release of the publication, the FAO conducted 9 workshops across the province to talk with landowners about renewable energy. A revised version of the publication was released in September 2017 to reflect what was learned during the workshops and changes in legislation. The new version provides more information for municipalities and adjacent landowners, and provides more context for the developments within the Alberta Electric System Operator's (AESO) Renewable Energy Program. The FAO's publication has since been renamed "Renewable Energy in Alberta."
