At Olsson, we have the renewable energy solutions to help energy providers, like you, meet these demands.

With a team of renewable energy experts and professional consulting services, we can carry your wind energy and solar projects through the regulatory process from site selection to post-construction operation. The secret to our success? Personalized project management emphasizing clear and constant communication with the stakeholder, including the developer and regulatory agencies.

We have completed utility-scale solar projects in the Midwest and throughout the United States, and our wind energy projects are visible coast to coast.
