Permitting Renewable and Alternative Energy Projects
We have assisted clients with siting renewable and alternative energy projects, including wind, biogas, solar, biomass, and hydroelectric power. We help clients develop infrastructure transmission access, and to resolve regulatory issues. We prepare and negotiate power purchase arrangements and advise clients on land use, environmental review, ESA, water rights, water quality, and air permitting matters arising during project planning, development, and operation. We regularly represent private developers and utilities in state regulatory and FERC proceedings, and in court.
We also assist alternative energy clients in issues related to climate change and carbon sequestration. We have helped clients with federal carbon sequestration policy, Dept. of Energy grants, Clean Air Act, and NEPA compliance.
