Dan Spitzer gave a webinar titled "Environmental Issues in Solar Energy Projects: Pre-Project Environmental Due Diligence, Environmental Impact Review, Federal Permitting Requirements." 

This CLE webinar provided an overview of the environmental laws and regulations governing the development of solar power projects, from small rooftop installations sited on existing buildings to utility-scale solar farms. The panel discussed pre-project environmental due diligence, compliance with federal and state environmental impact review requirements, and compliance with federal permitting and review requirements under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), the National Historical Preservation Act (NHPA), the Clean Water Act (CWA), and the Endangered Species Act (ESA), among others.
