renewable energy

We provide expertise to developers and municipalities at all stages of renewable energy projects. From planning and property acquisition, to environmental review, permitting, and the studies that may be necessitated from these processes, our team can guide you to an engineering-ready site.  From there, our civil, electrical, and power transmission and distribution engineers can deliver technical solutions customized to local requirements.

article 10

New York State's Article 10

  • LaBella is uniquely situated to assist in tackling the Article 10 process. Simply put, we have experience with this relatively new process and solar energy development that few firms have.

  • LaBella has been involved with four Article 10 projects, one of which is in the advanced stages of the approval process. We are very familiar with the finer points, pitfalls, and opportunities that exist under Article 10, including key issues of local concern.

  • New York State is currently experiencing a substantial influx of Article 10 solar energy projects.

  • Since 2017, at least 15 utility-scale solar projects have been proposed, almost entirely in upstate New York.
