A commercial lease is the law. Unlike other areas of real estate that are subject to major statutory structures, most states have only limited statutory authority on commercial leases. Therefore, to negotiate the best lease for your client, it is essential to anticipate and address upfront any potential disputes that may occur as the lease document itself will determine how the law should be applied. Written by attorneys who each negotiate over 200 leases a year, this is a practical examination of commercial lease negotiations and language. Every lease negotiation encompasses knowledge of and collaboration with several disciplines, including construction, engineering, accounting, and tax. The authors discuss key negotiating topics, and each discussion is followed by valuable sample clauses language that address the issue. Topics address common commercial lease issues, including: The critical pre-opening period, including construction, contingencies, and warranties Leasing and use restrictions Securing lease obligations Priority lien rights Financial issues, including percentage rent, taxes, and insurance Common areas Lease transfers and co-tenancy Mixed-use projects Purchase of outlots Maintenance Each chapter is followed by a conclusion that highlights key issues, plus an appendix with sample language for the most critical issues being negotiated in that aspect of the commercial lease."
The Paris Agreement on Climate Change adopted on December 12, 2015 is a voluntary effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In order to reach the goals of this agreement, there is a need to generate electricity without greenhouse gas emissions and to electrify transportation. An infrastructure of SPCSs can help accomplish both of these transitions. Globally, expenditures associated with the generation, transmission, and use of electricity are more than one trillion dollars per year. Annual transportation expenditures are also more than one trillion dollars per year. Almost everyone will be impacted by these changes in transportation, solar power generation, and smart grid developments. The benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions will differ with location, but all will be impacted. This book is about the benefits associated with adding solar panels to parking lots to generate electricity, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide shade and shelter from rain and snow. The electricity can flow into the power grid or be used to charge electric vehicles (EVs). Solar powered charging stations (SPCSs) are already in many parking lots in many countries of the world. The prices of solar panels have decreased recently, and about 30% of the new U.S. electrical generating capacity in 2015 was from solar energy. More than one million EVs are in service in 2016, and there are significant benefits associated with a convenient charging infrastructure of SPCSs to support transportation with electric vehicles. Solar Powered Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles: A Sustainable Development aims to share information on pathways from our present situation to a world with a more sustainable transportation system with EVs, SPCSs, a modernized smart power grid with energy storage, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and better urban air quality. Covering 200 million parking spaces with solar panels can generate about 1/4 of the electricity that was generated in 2014 in the United States. Millions of EVs with 20 to 50 kWh of battery storage can help with the transition to wind and solar power generation through owners responding to time-of-use prices. Written for all audiences, high school and college teachers and students, those in industry and government, and those involved in community issues will benefit by learning more about the topics addressed in the book. Those working with electrical power and transportation, who will be in the middle of the transition, will want to learn about all of the challenges and developments that are addressed here.
