Gordon Feinblatt’s Energy and Environmental Team takes an interdisciplinary approach, with the goal of preventing or containing multi-faceted and expensive problems.

We draw upon the experience and resources of our Energy and Environmental lawyers to navigate the often complex planning issues and approval processes surrounding power development, environmental response and urban redevelopment in Maryland and beyond.

Our team is up to date on key legislation, upcoming regulatory issues that will impact the solar market and COVID-19 response based on Governor Hogan's phased strategy.

We need to enter into a power purchase agreement (PPA). Which details are most important?

  • Pricing: Is it fixed or variable? Even if fixed, is it subject to change in law?
  • Termination: Is there a penalty for early cancellation, and if your supplier cancels, what is the default?
  • If the supply is tied to your property (e.g. rooftop solar), what recourse do you have if there is property damage during installation or years after the installation?

For more information or for advice in entering into a PPA, please contact Todd Chason, Doug Coats or Michael Powell.
