Addressing the Special Needs of Utility Companies
Utility companies will face unique and significant challenges in attempting to comply with AB 32. We know how to help utilities identify and choose one or more of the options available to them.
For example, we have negotiated and prepared agreements to exchange and/or purchase emission reduction credits, giving us insight into potential cap and trade programs for carbon emissions. And, we have advised clients on the construction of renewable energy facilities (e.g., solar, hydroelectric and cogeneration facilities), including preparing contract documents and contracting under qualifications-based delivery methods rather than lowest-responsible-bidder methods.
