Wind Energy

Stoel Rives has built a strong reputation as a leading global wind energy law firm. We have worked with developers of some of North America’s largest wind energy sites, for a total of 15,820 megawatts of installed capacity through 2013. We have also advised clients with operations in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, China and Southeast Asia.

Wind energy is now a mature energy market. Expiration of the federal production tax credit marked the end of an era. However, significant opportunities for well-capitalized developers with access to alternative sources of funding remain on the table.

The lawyers of Stoel Rives LLP are ready to help you navigate the coming years of market and regulatory changes.
