Experienced Renewable Energy Attorneys

Although more renewable energy projects such as solar gardens and wind turbine installations dot the landscape, they are not a typical use of land. These projects often involve multiple parties, sophisticated financing, tax credits and long-term contracts. We understand the challenges facing the renewable energy developer, the excitement and concerns of landowners and their neighbors, the regulatory environment, power purchase challenges, and local control issues. We have been involved in:

  • Agreements for land rights for large solar installations
  • Lease and easement contracts for wind turbines
  • Access easements and neighbor agreements
  • Mortgage financing by landowner and lease holder
  • State and local regulatory issues
