Energy, Solar, and Renewables
Chambliss attorneys advise energy providers, including those involved with solar power and other renewables, on many aspects of their businesses, including contracts, project structuring, finance, environmental concerns, and regulatory compliance.
Our team has over 40 years' experience advising a wide variety of companies involved with the energy industry, including clients focused on clean energy, energy efficiency, and traditional energy. We work with public and investor-owned utility providers, energy consumers, and energy suppliers. We have experience with Qualified Facilities and other small power producers, as well as working with providers and customers of large-scale wind and solar projects. Our work covers developing, negotiating, and documenting business arrangements for energy supply and transmission, communications and power network expansion and access, joint venture agreements, easements, siting, and security issues. Our attorneys also assist with tax, environmental, regulatory permitting, reporting, and compliance issues.
Best Lawyers has recognized our energy chair, Rick Hitchcock, for over 20 years for his substantial experience and results in this field. Some of the major projects in which we have been involved include an 8 MW solar park supporting a major industrial facility and a 1.3 MW solar installation for a publicly-owned utility. We have assisted a client with negotiating large-scale load control and energy efficiency arrangements. Our team has extensive experience with state and federal laws and regulations applicable to the electric power, communications, and renewable energy industries. Chambliss regularly represents clients in litigation and administrative hearings on utility issues. With our depth of experience and knowledge, our clients can be confident we will address their concerns in detail and help them reach their innovative business goals.
