Renewable Energy

Stoel Rives provides a broad array of legal services to developers, investors, utilities and project owners in the renewable energy sector. Clients turn to us because of our extensive experience in wind, solar, geothermal, bioenergy, and ocean and tidal energy. We can bring together the right team of lawyers for each project, whether it be permitting a wind farm or drafting and negotiating a power purchase agreement. We can guide you through transmission interconnection issues or compliance with state and federal regulatory requirements. We can assist with tax credits and other incentives, or handling the sale or purchase of renewable energy development assets and projects.
