Renewable Energy Development
Integrated environmental, engineering and construction solutions for optimal project efficiency and accountability.
Renewable energy developers face an increasingly fast-moving and competitive market. States, cities and businesses have set aggressive clean energy goals. Wind and solar generation costs continue to decline. Technology innovations are driving more effective grid integration. And interest is growing from the investment community. While opportunities abound, bringing projects online to meet this growing demand comes with challenges.
TRC can help you address this challenges by working as an extension of your team to help you plan, permit, engineer, and support construction to bring renewable energy projects online.
TRC plans, permits, engineers, and supports construction for renewables projects nationwide.
From finding the right project location to obtaining permits, working with stakeholders, building on challenging sites and connecting to the grid, we are your trusted advisor every step of the way.
Our integrated service model saves you time and administrative costs, helping to bring your project online faster, through a more efficient process and with more accountability.

Our Approach to Renewables Delivery
Location is everything. Find the most suitable land for your project.
Site Selection and Evaluation
Renewable energy siting can be a complex process. Choosing the right spot efficiently and effectively sets you up for development success. Our GIS specialists, land agents, scientists and engineers identify the best options for your project, weighing factors including interconnection points, environmental impact and cost and taking advantage where possible of landfills or other environmentally impacted properties.
Protect natural resources, reduce mitigation costs and secure project approvals without delay.
Environmental Planning and Permitting
TRC is a leader in renewable energy permitting. We identify and mitigate critical environmental concerns for impacted species, habitats and vegetation, meet all local, state and federal requirements, uncover opportunities to accelerate schedules and implement measures to avoid project opposition.
Optimize performance and production with integrated civil and electrical solutions.
Engineering and Design
From preliminary drawings to final specifications, TRC prepares you to deliver on your power production goals. We ensure that your site is structurally sound and ready for construction and help you plan for successful interconnection. Our project designs account for local conditions and proposed site details, cost estimates, performance predictions, capacity analysis, power delivery requirements, stormwater prevention, soils assessments, equipment layout and security.
Transition your site from plan to reality and meet your energization goals.
Procurement and Construction Management
TRC brings your project to life through a full range of engineering, procurement and construction services that increase efficiency and reduce costs. We provide solutions that deliver on your unique design criteria and performance requirements. You can rely on our design/build experience for a seamless, safe installation.
Manage risk and make smarter business decisions.
Due Diligence and Transaction Support
Renewable projects can be complicated by a host of technical, financial and legal issues that can prove fatal. To be successful, it is critical to identify project and operational risks and look for opportunities to maximize return. We help developers, investors, purchasers and lenders anticipate environmental and other development and operational challenges and overcome liabilities at all stages of the asset lifecycle, from acquisition to operation to divestiture.

Working closely with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, TRC obtained approval to construct solar arrays through two phases of installations on the site. Our leadership of the environmental permitting effort included completion of the design, obtaining approval and complete construction oversight.
Solar Construction Solutions from design to interconnection. When ABB wanted to showcase their products within the United States by installing a 1.29 MW ground mounted solar system at their Belton, South Carolina facility, the company turned to TRC for help under a compressed timeline.
Our work required very specific modeling and confidentiality agreements with vendors, both for proprietary reasons and because the 6 MW turbines were the first of this size in the world and had not yet been tested. Working closely with National Grid and the turbine vendor, we recommended adjustments to accommodate ground bank sizing and that over voltages could be minimized within surge ratings.
