LandGate Corp., a marketplace and data provider for commercial land and its resources including solar, wind, minerals, water and carbon, has released a PowerTools Suite, which brings together large troves of data, property listings, landowner information and filtering capabilities to change the way developers and land real estate agents source and evaluate land.
“With the PowerTools Suite, energy operators, investors and land real estate agents can access the best quality renewable energy and carbon data with advanced filtering and search, a marketplace of active deals and more,” said LandGate CEO and Co-Founder Yoann Hispa. “With this powerful addition to the market, investors and real estate agents can easily build a land asset position and print out reports that will aggregate — for all of the parcels selected — the potential value for solar farms, wind farms, carbon credits, water rights, agricultural/forestry value and rare earth minerals. As a larger segment of the energy sector turns toward renewables, PowerTools will be a boon for the industry, simplifying property analysis and helping professionals find, value and exchange land resources efficiently.”
The suite includes two new tools and enhancements to two existing LandGate products:
- PowerCRM, a new tool that will leverage LandGate’s solar, wind, oil and gas, mining and other databases to improve the process of identifying and tracking leads for developable land. Far surpassing even previous LandGate functionality, PowerCRM enables users to filter properties across the country based on a range of characteristics, including parcel size, proximity to a substation, state incentives, the presence of a motivated seller and more. Once parcels are identified, the SaaS (software-as-a-service) product allows team members across acquisition teams to easily track the progress of these potential investments, serving as a centralized dashboard for professionals across the investment process.
- PowerParcels, also new, enables users to take the next step toward completing land or resource royalty acquisitions for development. Through a LandGate partnership with CoreLogic, PowerParcels allows users to export complete ownership contact information for each parcel identified in PowerCRM, making it easy to contact landowners and close a land sale, renewable royalty sale, carbon offset transaction or land resource lease without the need for the traditional, but soon-to-be-outdated, cold-calling or knock-on-door approach.
- PowerData, a U.S. renewable energy and carbon database that gives users access to the full range of data and analytics relating to land uses and resources across the country. Users can access information about substations, distribution lines, transmission lines with voltage, max capacity, available capacity and interconnection queue data including operator and location.
- PowerLeads enables developers, operators, and investors to engage specifically with the active listings on the LandGate site. LandGate is now pulling listings and leads from MLS listings and from all LandGate-subscribed land real estate agents. As part of the PowerTools Suite product enhancements, PowerLeads has received a range of upgrades, including vastly improved filtering functionality.
