Development and Permitting

Our project managers understand the regulatory environment and navigate complex permitting processes required to take a greenfield or repower wind project through the development process at the local, federal, and territorial level. Our subject matter experts perform resource assessments to investigate project impacts and recommend appropriate best management practices.
