Godfrey & Kahn to present on Renewable Energy at Amerind/NAIHC Convention

Godfrey & Kahn Indian Nations law team leader Brian Pierson and Environment & Energy Strategies team leader John Clancy will present "Financing Renewable Energy for Indian Housing" Thursday, May 14 at 9:45 a.m. at the 2015 AMERIND - NAIHC Convention & Trade Show in Scottsdale, Arizona. We will explain how tribes can use investment tax credits in combination with state and federal grants and other incentives to develop solar, wind and other clean sources of energy, thereby advancing tribal environmental values, promoting tribal independence from state-regulated, carbon-based energy providers and reducing tenant costs.

Godfrey & Kahn works extensively with tribes to develop renewable energy. We assisted two of the eleven tribes that recently received large grants from the U.S. Department of Energy under its tribal energy program. For more information, contact Brian Pierson at 414.287.9456 or
