Developing a renewable energy project involves multiple considerations, including but not limited to establishing site control, obtaining permitting, contracting to sell the project’s output, financing the project, and interconnecting the project to the electric grid. The project development timeline below is illustrative.
Many of the considerations are legal in nature. This day-long continuing legal education program (CLE) will focus on the mechanics of renewable energy project development in North Carolina. Attendees will leave the CLE with a better understanding of:
• the renewable energy project development process
• the law and regulation pertinent to the process, and
• application of the law and regulation
In addition, attendees have the opportunity to network with professionals who can serve as resources and provide future assistance with particular legal and regulatory project development questions as they arise. Attendees will receive 5 credit hours of general CLE. Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks will be provided to attendees.
Parker Poe attorneys will be panelist during various sessions:
- Katherine Ross, "Project Siting and Permitting: Overview and Key Considerations"
- Henry Campen, "Federal and State Regulatory Filings and Proceedings"
- Steve Hunting, "Project-Related Federal and State Tax Considerations"
