Parker Poe’s Energy team guides clients through project development and finance, regulatory compliance and investigations, and joint ventures, mergers, and acquisitions. We are experienced before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and state utility commissions in the Southeast.
Our clients include electric and gas utilities, electric cooperatives, independent power producers, renewable energy developers (solar PV, solar thermal, wind, fuel cell, biomass, biogas, and geothermal), commercial and industrial energy consumers, universities, financial institutions, tax equity investors, and engineering, procurement, and construction companies. We approach each project like our clients do: collaborating and assembling the skill sets needed to accomplish the task effectively and efficiently.
Our team is structured from the perspective of in-house counsel. Our Energy team attorneys have more than five decades of experience working within electric and gas utilities. Our team also includes lawyers who have worked in federal and state government and regulatory positions with energy responsibilities, as well as lawyers who have guided renewable energy developers through landmark wind and solar projects in the Southeast. The result is a multidisciplinary team that collaborates to deliver quality, cost-effective service.
