Our team of energized law experts are ready to stand and protect your company's rights before regulatory agencies, the courts and the legislature. It's this type of total commitment that has served our clients well when dealing with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, Minnesota Department of Commerce, Environmental Quality Board, Pollution Control Agency and others. Because we continually present powerful arguments that generate positive results, it's no wonder clients continue to come to us on matters such as:
- Competitive bidding and power purchase agreements
- Siting, permitting and certificate of need proceedings
- Project financing, with particular focus on renewable energy financing
- Resource planning and selection dockets
- Rate cases and other significant matters before regulatory agencies
Our Energy Law attorneys have maintained a steady presence at the legislature and regulatory agencies, holding ongoing discussions concerning energy industry restructuring, renewable energy issues and general policy matters. We've also worked closely with new entrants in the energy markets, such as wind energy developers, to ensure their success.
By combining our technical and industry expertise, we are well-prepared to defend your position or to take an aggressive stance to shape energy policy like we did when we worked actively to shape the 2001 Energy Security and Reliability Act, Minnesota's most sweeping amendment of the state's energy laws in the last 20 years, and passing Minnesota's Next Generation Energy Act of 2007, which established aggressive renewable energy standards for the state.
Whatever the level of energy it takes, you'll find Winthrop & Weinstine has the right combination of skills, experience and relationships with key policy leaders to deliver the type of energizing results you expect.
