Eaton Peabody helps clients identify, implement and secure the financing to implement green energy alternatives and strategies.
Eaton Peabody is a leader in assisting developers, businesses, and communities in developing alternative energy programs. Whether our clients seek to identify financing options or to negotiate terms and conditions, we can provide crucial guidance.
Working with Eaton Peabody Consulting Group (EPCG), we represent private land owners negotiating with wind power companies for easement and leasing rights to test and develop wind farms. We also assist wind companies with respect to real estate and state permitting issues concerning the development and acquisition of wind projects, and are adept at identifying renewable energy grants and tax savings for businesses, negotiating tax increment financing (TIF) options for communities and developers, and preparing ordinances to facilitate alternative energy development. EPCG has key partners to assist our clients in seeking and implementing green energy strategies.
Our attorneys and consultants have identified unique approaches for the development of alternative energy projects. We recognize that each project, each business and each community is different.
We design an approach unique to each case based on experience across Maine, northern New England and eastern Canada. We design a solution that fits your needs. Most of all, we are a key link between your business goals and the desires of the community.
