Solar Energy

Keeping solar energy producers ahead of the curve.

As solar power becomes cost-competitive with traditional electric generation, the demand for clean energy continues to grow. Our long history working with power generation developers, investors and financing parties, as well as with electric utilities, provides us with an understanding of the issues and challenges facing the industry and a business perspective that gives our clients an advantage. We know the business, and we know its laws and regulations.

With experience encompassing utility-scale and distributed solar projects and markets, our Solar Energy law team has a nationwide reputation for innovative ideas for structuring, financing and developing solar projects and solar businesses throughout the country. Our work has helped bring together new and existing industry participants and has helped existing power generation participants broaden their involvement to include additional segments of the solar development, ownership and operating life-cycle.

We also work extensively with energy storage projects across the country and in Guam, Canada and Mexico. Our professionals have assisted in the development, construction and sale of demand-response and frequency regulation lithium-ion battery storage projects for large utilities.
