The Law of Wind: A Guide to Business and Legal Issues
As the world's fastest growing energy source, wind can help power our homes and businesses and buttress local agricultural economies while leaving cleaner skies for our children. Major global corporations, new sources of investment capital, and power buyers large and small have been drawn to wind. States across the U.S. have moved to fill the federal leadership vacuum, in many cases enacting renewable portfolio standards and staterenewable energy tax credits. The industry is vibrant.
Nonetheless, wind projects like other major projects are subject to a plethora of real property issues, regulatory and permitting requirements, interconnection, transmission and power purchase negotiations, financing challenges, tax matters, construction contracting and labor management issues.
Recognizing these challenges, and as part of our commitment to the growth and success of the renewable energy industry, in 2003 the Stoel Rives Wind Team developed THE LAW OF WIND: A GUIDE TO BUSINESS AND LEGAL ISSUES. This guide contains insights we have gained during the last 10 years serving the U.S. wind power industry.
