Whether energy is developed from renewable resources such as wind, solar, biofuels, hydro and geothermal or from more traditional sources like coal, natural gas and nuclear, the energy-generation process can be challenging in the face of ever-changing regulations and market demands. 

SWCA’s energy experts have in-depth knowledge of the many project phases and compliance hurdles that generation industry leaders face. Our comprehensive services guide clients through every step of the generation process — from initial Plans of Development and right-of-way applications to resource surveying and post-construction monitoring.
