Any experience with large solar farms or cell towers?

Despite the corporate requirement, large scale solar farms and cell towers provide a substantial amount of residual income. Does anyone here have experience getting either installed on your property?

We have a long property, creating a 100 acre back-40 that could easily hold a large solar farm and a peak that's ideal for a much needed cell tower. Does anyone have experience working with any particular companies? Anyone try to do it themselves? Grants? For anyone who has done this, what quality infrastructure do these company install along with the structure(s)?

(We're aware of the potential health conflicts, but let's there are already plenty of threads devoted to that.)

I can't speak to this directly. A note of caution: I know a fellow who thought he had made a great deal to have a cell tower installed on his property. Free cash every year! Yay! Except, the county classified that as industrial infrastructure, taxed at a much higher rate. And the landowner was on the hook for it. Ouch.
