Solar and Wind

Obtaining land use entitlements and environmental clearances for renewable energy projects can be complicated and controversial. Oftentimes, permits and clearances are needed from multiple federal, state, and local agencies. There is also increasing scrutiny from private environmental conservation groups for these projects, particularly when they are located on previously undisturbed land.

ECORP’s expert staff of project managers, biologists, archaeologists, land use planners, and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)/National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) specialists can guide clients through the development process for solar, wind, biomass, and other renewable energy projects on private and public land throughout California. Beginning at the initial project planning level, ECORP staff works closely with applicant staff to identify parcels suitable for energy development; prepare fatal flaw/opportunities and constraints analyses; and provide comprehensive project management of development applications to local, state and federal agencies. Unlike many large engineering companies who only offer environmental services as an adjunct to their main business focus, ECORP’s concentration is on land planning, California Environmental Quality (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy (NEPA) analysis, biological resources, cultural resources, and water resources services in California, Nevada, and Arizona. When you hire ECORP, you will get a team of local experts in their field.
