Godfrey & Kahn to present on solar, wind and other renewable energy opportunities at NAIHC/Amerind Housing Conference May 10

By transitioning from reliance on coal-based energy produced by state-regulated utilities to reservation-based renewable energy, tribes enhance their economic independence, promote tribal environmental values and reduce energy costs. Godfrey & Kahn Indian Nations law team leader Brian Pierson and Environment & Energy Strategies team leader John Clancy will present “Financing Clean, Cost-Effective Renewable Energy for Tribal Housing” on Tuesday, May 10, at the 2016 AMERIND Risk/NAIHC Annual Convention & Trade Fair at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, HI. Illustrating with real world, Indian country examples, we will describe how formation of limited liability companies enables tribes and TDHEs, otherwise unable to take advantage of tax credits, to obtain financing from investors through the federal renewable energy tax credits and explain the role of power purchase agreements, net metering and other issues relating to the economics of renewable energy. Godfrey & Kahn works extensively with tribes on the solar, wind and other renewable energy projects. For more information, contact Brian Pierson at 414.287.9456 or
