Co-managing members Eric Hurlocker and Brian Greene wish clients, colleagues and friends seasonal greetings and happy new year.
Later today, we will be heading to Atlanta for the Southeast Renewable Energy conference being held at the Westin Atlanta Perimeter Hotel. We’re going to this networking event where the entire southeast renewable energy community gathers to get the latest insights into the market and to meet key players as well as clients and colleagues.
In the sessions on Thursday and Friday, we hope to learn about the key trends impacting renewable energy project development, finance and investment; meet with utility procurement managers; and engage in networking with the decision-makers who are driving the industry forward. If you are planning to attend, please look for me and let’s talk about renewable energy in Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic.
If you have questions about or issues in renewable energy, just contact any of our renewable energy lawyers.
Solar Focus 2018, the annual conference of our Maryland-District of Columbia-Virginia chapter of the Solar Energy Industry Association (MDV-SEIA), begins October 30 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC. GreeneHurlocker continues to be a sponsor for this important and influential industry event, so look on your folders for our imprint. I will be on site to join in the usual spirited discussions about how to promote and grow the role of solar energy in our lives and our businesses.
Our energy practice will be represented on the “Virginia’s Rapid Solar Growth: How is the Commonwealth’s Energy Market Evolving?” panel, where Will Reisinger is among the guests. That’s at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, the 31st, and we hope you will join the audience to talk about Governor Northam’s initiatives and the actions of the 2018 General Assembly.
Look me up when you’re in DC, I’ll be out in the halls and would love to talk with you about the things on your mind and what your firm is looking forward to in the next year. If you want more information about MDV-SEIA or to talk about renewable energy development just give me a call, or talk to any of our solar energy lawyers.
We were pleased to be involved in the Sierra Club’s presentation organized for local governments in the Northern Virginia area last month, as we detailed here. Afterward, the Sierra Club said:
“This briefing was sponsored by the Great Falls Group and held at the Fairfax County Government Center to educate the participants on the budget-neutral tools of solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) and Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC). Presentation and handout information is available on the GFG website and the video recording is here.
Debra Jacobson had a lot of positive feedback from this event. There will be an article on this event for the next GFG Cascade.”
Here are a few pictures of the audience at the Government Center and Eric Hurlocker opening the panel.
If you want to know more about this meeting, Power Purchase Agreements, Energy Savings Performance contracts, or other issues in the renewable energy field, contact any of our energy lawyers.
In part two of his mid-year summary, Eric reports on the “behind the meter” developments and wind projects, plus community solar in Maryland.
In part one of his mid-year update on renewable energy development in the mid-Atlantic, Eric showcases momentum in the solar energy industry.
I am excited to have been invited by the Great Falls Group of the Sierra Club to join in the “Clean Energy Financing Workshop for Local Governments” that will be held this Friday (September 7) from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Fairfax County Government Center. I’ll be talking about one of our favorite topics: solar power purchase agreements (SPPA), an accessible way for financing renewable energy projects that local governments can use.
This brown bag lunch event is free, but registration is required as space is limited. If you can’t make it on Friday, I understand you can register as a virtual attendee and get access to the video after the session. Maybe I will see you there. If we miss each other, I can answer any questions about this topic or renewable energy development here, or just contact one of our renewable energy lawyers.
We were excited when our morning edition of RichmondBizSense arrived in our inbox to see our client Nutriati covered in some detail. This innovative client has been pioneering a chickpea-based food additive and the industry’s interest in their products is gaining momentum. We’re glad so many are paying attention to their work.
If you have any questions about our business law work or have an issue you need to discuss, please contact any of our business lawyers.
GreeneHurlocker was very proud to be a long-time supporter of the Deep Run Marathon Dance, which in its final year raised over $197,000. Over the twelve-year run of the Dance, the passionate teenagers at Deep Run High School and community volunteers raised nearly $2.2 million for worthy local non-profits.
It is always a privilege for us to join in local causes that benefit the community. We’ve supported others in past years including the Rutlin Torah Academy, United Way, Commonwealth Catholic Charities’ undocumented youth project and CancerLINC. If you want to know more about our community involvement, contact any of our lawyers.
Here are a few photos we took last weekend:
For over a decade, the madness of March includes the Deep Run Marathon Dance. GreeneHurlocker has been a steady supporter of this great event, which will be held for the final time March 16 and March 17, at Deep Run High School. The Marathon Dance benefits the charities of our local community, and since it began, Deep Run High School students, of all grades, have raised about two million dollars for local charities. The event has become the second largest high school dance marathon in the country is run and put together by the help of the student committee. Watch their video about the 2018 effort on the Facebook page.
Stay tuned for pictures and updates from this year’s Marathon Dance.#DRMD18
