Practice Areas

Energy

We help our energy law clients with a wide variety of renewable energy matters.  Our energy practice fits well with our extensive experience in environmental, municipal, land use, and zoning law.

For example, The Zoghlin Group assists municipalities in drafting and understanding local laws, such as zoning ordinances or other local solar or wind laws, which affect the local siting of renewables.  We also represent municipalities in connection with NYISO Interconnection Process and Article VII review process when new energy producing projects seek to connect to a municipal energy system.

The Zoghlin Group represents clients involved in Article 10 siting of major wind and solar projects throughout New York.  We guide a wide variety of clients through the Article 10 process under the New York Public Service Law, in which developers of major electric generating facilities apply for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need.  Throughout the pre-application and application stages, we help Article 10 clients:

  • apply for Intervenor Funding;
  • identify and work with experts to better understand a proposed project’s impacts;
  • meaningfully participate in comments and hearings; and
  • contribute to a complete record that informs the decision on the appropriateness of a proposed site and facility.
