Stoel Rives Publishes Case Study on Wind Development Project in California; Chinese Translation Available
Stoel Rives is pleased to announce the publication of a case study chronicling the development a hypothetical 200 MW wind project in southern California. The study covers the legal framework for a project of this scale, including real estate, permitting, transmission and interconnection, power purchase agreement, renewable energy credits, turbine supply and balance of plant agreements, and financing.
Case Study: Development of a Wind Project in the State of California (available in English and Chinese) was prepared for presentation at the Workshop on Investment in U.S. Wind Energy by Chinese Companies, held in Beijing, China on June 30, 2011. This workshop, organized by the Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA), the U.S.-China Energy Cooperation Program (ECP) Wind Power Working Group (WPWG), and the National Energy Administration (NEA), gathers wind experts from across the U.S. and China to discuss the globalization of the Chinese wind energy industry, strategies for undertaking M&A transactions in the U.S., and a variety of case studies based on wind energy development projects. Stoel Rives attorneys Ed Einowski, Alan Merkle and Michael Mangelson will attend the workshop.
