RENEWABLE ENERGY | COMMUNITY ENERGY/LOCAL OWNERSHIP
While the firm represents large corporations, because of its unique skill set and fee structure, many of its clients include relative newcomers to the business, and clients seeking to maximize ownership, construction and financing by local community members. Newcomers include international suppliers or financiers entering the U.S. market. Community-based energy projects include projects to be owned by a utility customer, university, non-profit or government entity, individuals and local investor groups. The firm has been instrumental in creating and evoking development structures and financing tools for such non-traditional generation owners, including the “Minnesota Flip” and other means of accessing available capital.
