Within the USA, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulates the licensing of all hydropower projects. As an environmental consultant, GEPermit prepares for these various FERC requirements for hydropower projects, such as:
- Application documents
- Conducting site visits
- Providing permitting recommendations in order to facilitate the speed of the approval process
- Organizing consultations with a variety of public and private agencies
GEPermit has prepared numerous Preliminary Permit Applications (PPAs) and Pre-Application Documents (PADs) for proposed hydropower projects to improve renewable energy San Diego and throughout California, including 3 MW Daguerre Point Dam Hydropower and Kaweah Hydropower Projects.
Solar and Wind Energy
GEPermit has prepared numerous environmental documents for solar and wind renewable energy related projects across the United States. The majority of our projects include nationwide fatal flaw analysis and due diligence review work prior to potential project acquisitions.
Client Example #1: PV Solar Development Acquisition Support and Due Diligence, California
For PV Solar Development Acquisition Support and Due Diligence, California GEPermit completed a high-level due diligence project for 17 PV developments in California. GEPermit reviewed all the projects’ Phase I studies, reviewed the environmental studies, and analyzed the permitting process.
The project concluded with a summary of potential fatal flaws and opportunity analysis. The client evaluated final acquisition options. Upon selection of projects, GEPermit was retained to complete the overall environmental review and CEQA process for the projects.
Client Example #2: Environmental Permitting Support for 100 MW and 200 MW Wind Energy Developments, New Mexico
GEPermit prepared a comprehensive permitting and fatal flaw analysis for two separate wind energy projects in southern New Mexico. We conducted federal, state, and local agency interaction and identified critical environmental issues with respect to the project.
The end result: Our satisfactory work resulted in additional task orders related to this project.
