Rural Renewables and Green Energy

About

Renewable energy has played an increasing role in rural diversification projects. Hewitsons have advised land owners on all aspects of installation of self build projects – whether solar panels, wind, woodchip or AD. We have specialists dealing with the construction, funding or contractual elements associated with them.


As to larger developer- led projects, we have advised on over 80 projects where our clients have entered into options and then leases of sites or cabling rights for green energy projects. The feedstock or offtake agreements associated with AD require an overview of the farm strategy and associated partnership or corporate issues, an understanding of the industry which Hewitsons can provide. We also have considerable experience in relation to the more unusual. Analysis of water rights for Hydro Projects, documents for gas generation projects, some for waste sites, and the resulting easements, battery storage contracts, power purchase and direct agreements. solar and wind development projects.
