Renewable Energy

Our clients include power-generation companies, utilities, manufacturers, businesses and industries that provide electricity, gas, water and power to their customers worldwide. We understand the complicated, diverse needs of renewable energy projects and the federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances impacting them. Hanson has the experience and relationships to help you execute your project — working with you, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders to attain the approvals your energy project needs to be successful.

With offices across the U.S., we can draw on resources from around the country to assist you in the oftentimes cross-country nature of transferring renewables from generation to customer.
