Public-Private Partnership for Municipal Landfill Gas-to-Energy Project 

Hodgson Russ successfully represented a village in setting up a unique public-private partnership for a landfill gas-to-energy project, including negotiating and drafting the joint venture agreements, obtaining required land use rights, negotiating upgrades to local and regional transmission system, drafting the interconnection and financing agreements, and guiding the environmental evaluation. Our firm also assisted the village in obtaining a debt-exclusion certification from the New York State Comptroller's Office based on the self-liquidating nature of the debt incurred, so that the village's debt statement was not affected by the financing of this project.
