Developing an energy project is multifaceted and involves many different parties including utilities, government agencies, developers, grid operators, and financing parties. In this webinar, speakers will address the steps to developing a one- to two-megawatt energy project located on property owned or controlled by a Tribe to serve the energy needs of the tribal community. Steps will include identifying a site or building structure(s) that is economically feasible; the environmental regulations impacting the project; the local, state and federal permits required to construct and operate the project; selling the electricity produced; leveraging government incentives; how the project will be connected to the grid, operated and maintained, and utilized to the fullest benefit of the tribe, among other considerations.
