When planning for construction of a new major utility facility, such as a new power plant, or the expansion or upgrade of existing electric or gas transmission infrastructure, a critical part of the process involves obtaining the various regulatory approvals for the new or upgraded facilities. The proceedings to secure approval are always complex and frequently controversial. Our attorneys help our clients to get over the hurdles to move these critical infrastructure projects forward.
From the identification of potential sites for new electric generation, to the evaluation and assessment of the practical and regulatory feasibility of routes selected for linear infrastructure projects, we help clients develop an effective strategy that not only secures the necessary regulatory approvals but mitigates the likelihood of costly opposition. We understand that a successful project is one that gets built on time and on budget, and we work with a singular focus on this goal.
