Environmental Working Group


The Environmental Working Group is dedicated to exploring the environmental impact of renewable energy sources. The group seeks to identify responsible solutions to address ecological challenges posed by the deployment of renewable energy technologies. Additionally, the group aims to quantify renewable energy’s positive impact, including its ability to avoid carbon emissions. The group will provide strategic review and comment on permitting and regulatory aspects of solar and wind energy development, implementation, and operation. They will also evaluate the environmental aspects of the general solar and wind energy industry.

"The Environmental Working Group is important as it keeps our members informed with current information regarding any new regulations applicable to the industry, regulatory changes or amendments, environmental best practices and compliance, trends and any other relevant topics. "
